Got curry? Chris Bosh is taking his talents to India. Temporarily. The two-time defending National Basketball Association Champion and eight-time All-Star is traveling to Mumbai, India, July 16-19. The Miami Heat power player will be partaking in various events to “continue the growth of the game and connect with NBA fans” over there, according to a statement.
“I am excited for the chance to visit India and help build interest in the game I love,” said the father to be. “The NBA is a global game, and I hear that basketball is becoming pretty popular over there so I am looking forward to teaching kids that may end up in our league one day.”
India is a hot destination, in more ways than one: The International Indian Film Academy will bring the glitter and glamour of its “Bollywood Oscars” to the Tampa area next summer. It’s the first time the international event will be held in a U.S. city.
Meanwhile, in LeBron James’ world, it seems Savannah Brinson and her king have set a date. According to her Facebook page, they’ll exchange vows Sept. 15, but the location was not disclosed. Brinson posted a picture of her below a sign that read, “Soon to be Mrs. James,” which as of Monday had close to 3,500 “likes.”

On Sunday night’s episode, the 28-year-old gallivanted about the house, baring her breasts. OK, they were covered with Band-Aids, leading the production crew to voice concerns about the placement of her microphone.
At least mom is proud. Marilyn Zuckerman told The Palm Beach Post: “She’s going to be America’s favorite, for sure. They’re going to want to keep her around.”
