NBA All-Stars World Tour Schedule Announced


The NBA lockout has made many things possible for the league’s players that don’t have a current commitment to their teams. Several players have signed up to play overseas in various leagues, while others are working on their talents at home. A group of elite players that includes Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade, Dwight Howard and others, have announced their plans to participate in a world tour of exhibition games.

The tour is known as the World All-Star Classic, and the players are expected to make around $1 million each with many of the proceeds going to charity.

According to ESPN the tour will start in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on Sunday before two games are played at London’s O2 Arena on Nov. 1 and 2. This will be followed by a game in Macau, which will play host to game four on Nov. 6, ahead of the finale in Melbourne.

However, the Melbourne and Olympic Parks Trust has refused to confirm any of the dates, but at this point it seems certain that the World All-Star Classic will go on as currently planned.
