Sources: Kobe Headlining All-Star Tour
Several of the biggest stars in the NBA – including Kobe Bryant, Amar’e Stoudemire and Kevin Durant – are finalizing a 10-day barnstorming tour across four continents, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
As the 3½-month NBA lockout drags on, threatening to soon eliminate the entire first month of the regular season, the league’s most prominent players are scouring the globe for chances to earn income, market their brands and play the game.
The tour is set to start in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on Oct. 30, and pushes onto London’s O2 Arena (Nov. 1 and 3); Macau, China (Nov. 5); and Melbourne, Australia (Nov. 8 and 9), sources said.
