LBJ, ‘Melo, CP3, and Wade set up “Homecoming Tour”

@SportsBata ..nuff said

LBJ, ‘Melo, CP3, and Dwyane Wade set up a four-game “Homecoming Tour”! The Tour starts on Dec. 1 in LBJ hometown of Akron, Ohio. Then it moves to CP3’s city of New Orleans on Dec. 4. On Dec. 7, they will play in Wade’s hometown, Chicago. The tour concludes near ‘Melo’s city (NYC) in East Rutherford, NJ on Dec. 10. The rosters will follow the area there in, and the players will captain their own cities! Tickets for the first three games will go on sale Tuesday, and tickets for the fourth game in NJ will go on sale on Wednesday! Proceeds from the tour — which will include events such as food drives, educational outreach programs and clinics in each city — will benefit the four headlining players’ charitable foundations, and tour sponsor Google Plus will stream each game live. – espn

“It’ll be very neat,” Wade told The Associated Press. “First of all, this is something we talked about doing a long time ago as players. To have an opportunity to go to these different cities that we’re from, to bring basketball to them at a high level and also have a charitable component in each city and to be with the guys, it’ll be cool. It’s something we’re looking forward to.” – espn
