CLEVELAND: LeBron James confirmed on Wednesday the birth of his daughter, Zhuri Nova. It is he and wife Savannah’s third child together. Zhuri was born last week.



“My family is happy and it’s a blessing to be able to add another one to our family,” James said the day before the Cavs open the season at home against the New York Knicks. It is the family’s first daughter.



“”It’s different. It’s a lot different,” James said. “You give rough love to your boys and you give soft love to your daughter. I understand that and I’m looking forward to the journey of all three of them growing up.”
