*The NBA lockout has inspired some creativity among the pros, which are forced to find other means of income, entertainment, and good basketball.
Some of the leading players, including LeBron James, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade and Carmelo Anthony, are digging deep to please the fans and establish an unofficial season of basketball.
The All-Star group is planning to lead a four-game “Homecoming Tour” that will make stops in Akron, Ohio on Dec. 1, New Orleans on Dec. 4, Chicago on Dec. 7 and East Rutherford, N.J. on Dec. 10.
Proceeds from the games will go toward food drives, educational outreach programs, and clinics in each city. The games will be brought to audiences worldwide via Google Plus, which will stream each one live.
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.”
