Tour De LeBron Comes Through James Hometown 2009: Akron Ohio

Tour de LeBron comes through James hometown

AKRON, Ohio &mdash LeBron James gave fellow NBA all-star Chris Paul a tour of his hometown – on two wheels.
The U.S. Olympic teammates and close friends rode through the city’s streets on Saturday as James hosted his annual “King for Kids” charity bike-a-thon. James and Paul pushed the pace in the lead group of bicyclists. They pedalled past James’ former high school St. Vincent-St. Mary and the city’s zoo on the 12-kilometre route. James was joined by TV host Nick Cannon, Cavaliers coach Mike Brown and Cleveland general manager Danny Ferry. The event ended a busy three days in Akron for James, who screened a new documentary about how he and his friends achieved their dream of winning a national championship. James was scheduled to travel to China on Saturday to promote the film.
