The likely 2037 WNBA MVP has entered this world.

According to TMZ, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James' wolf pack has grown by one, as his wife Savannah gave birth to the couple's third child last week. Zhuri is James' first daughter.    

No longer needing to go through the circus of NBA free agency, the four-time MVP and two-time NBA champion can now simply field his own team of five. Along with newly born Zhuri and his wife, James has two sons, 10-year-old LeBron Jr. and seven-year-old Bryce Maximus.

In all seriousness, it's nice to see a player of James' stature find a way to successfully juggle his incredibly demanding professional career and still-growing family. It would appear the 29-year-old enjoys fatherhood just as much as he does embarrassing defenders.

James will have to quickly shift gears, with his second stint in Cleveland set to officially begin Thursday night against the New York Knicks.
