LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul Headline "Homecoming Tour"
LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul will headline a four-game "Homecoming Tour," which will kick off on December 1.
According to a report from the Associated Press, the four superstars will play in a series of games running from December 1-10 and each game will be a "homecoming" for the stars involved.
With no end to the NBA lockout in sight, the All-Star group is set to lead a four-game "Homecoming Tour," starting with a matchup in James' hometown of Akron, Ohio on Dec. 1, followed by a Dec. 4 game in New Orleans, a Dec. 7 game in Chicago and culminating with a Dec. 10 contest in East Rutherford, N.J.
The proceeds collected from the games will go towards benefiting the players' charitable foundations, and the tour's sponsor, Google Plus, will stream each game live on the Internet for fans to be able to watch their favorite stars.
In addition to playing basketball, the tour will include things like educational outreach programs, food drives and clinics in each stop.
Although there are no players committed to play in all four games besides the headlining superstars, Chris Bosh is also expected to participate in the action, and that would make plenty of sense considering Wade and James are at the helm of the entire tour.
Fans will be treated to some exhibition basketball, and while that is typically a showcase of unorthodox passing and highlight-style alley-oop slam dunks, there's no question that fans will respond positively to seeing their favorite stars on the hardwood.
It will certainly be intriguing to see what type of reaction James receives when the action kicks off in Akron.
Tickets are expected to go on sale Tuesday for the first three games, and tickets for the final game in New Jersey will go on sale Wednesday.
