If you see someone who looks eerily like NBA 2003-04 Rookie of the Year LeBron James playing basketball on the street next month, don't hesitate to ask him to sign your ball. Travelling on Nike's tab, this 2-metre Cavaliers' superstar will be here on August 6 for the Asia Tour, which will include Japan and the mainland.


James, who is a fan of street ball, requested an outdoor promotional event because he is, according to organisers, 'a real people person'.


For his first time in Hong Kong, James plans to shoot some hoops with Nike's All Hong Kong Youth Basketball League, go shopping and party in Lan Kwai Fong. For a chance to meet him in person, check out www.nikebasketball.com.hk. Who knows, maybe you'll get a chance for some one-on-one action.
