*Since the NBA lockout is over, fans can kiss the “Homecoming Tour” good-bye.
LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and other stars who were scheduled to play, say they now have to get ready for the NBA season with its shortened schedule of 66 games.
The four-city basketball showcase was to begin on Dec. 1 in the home-city of LeBron James in Akron, Ohio, then continue on with stops in New Orleans, Chicago, and East Rutherford, N.J. where Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony and are from.
“We are thrilled that a tentative agreement has been reached and are looking forward to getting back to work and playing basketball,” Wade said in a statement. “We all want to reconnect with our teams to make sure we hit the ground running when training camps are expected to open on Dec. 9. Our commitment to helping children and the communities doesn’t stop, and the daily work of our foundations to do just this will continue, as always.”
Proceeds from the tour were to go to charities.
