LeBron James parades through China as part of yearly Nike tour


The people of China still have great admiration and love for the King of the National Basketball Association.

For the 12th year in a row, LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers visited the country as part of Nike’s tour of Asia.

The four-time league Most Valuable Player visited both Guangzhou and Beijing last week, hosting shooting drills and skill competitions while at the High School Basketball League All-Star Game at the Tianhe Sports Center. He worked with the Under-23 Chinese National team, as well.

James then took part in a massive championship parade in front of over 10,000 fans to celebrate the Cavaliers’ title victory over the 73-win Golden State Warriors in June.

“I have been coming here for a long time and knowing that I had this kind of support behind me keeps me going,” James said when asked what motivated him when the Cavaliers were down 3-1 in the series.
