On Sunday's episode of Oprah Winfrey's "Next Chapter," Miami Heat trio LeBron JamesDwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh sat down with the famed host to talk about their NBA championship win and their friendship on and off the court. Then in a one-on-one interview with James, they discussed his engagement to his 25-year-old longtime girlfriend Savannah Brinson.

The two have been together eight years and have two sons together, Bryce, 5, and LeBron, Jr., 7. James finally popped the question to his high school sweetheart during a New Year's Eve party in South Beach this past year.

"I was nervous. It felt like before a finals game," James said.

He asked Wade to hold on to the $300,000 engagement run during the party because he didn't want Brinson to "bump up against me and felt [sic] the ring."

"I asked him for it right after the ball dropped," James recalled. "He was like, 'You ready?' I was like, 'If you don't give me this ring right now, I ain't gonna do it.'"

The two have yet to announce a date for their wedding, but we're sure Brinson has been having a great time showing off her rock at Heat games all season.
