At an event during the NBA player's Nike-sponsored tour of Asia, the Cleveland Cavaliers star took the stage in front of hundreds of fans in Taiwan and posed for pictures before slowly stripping. And while a strip show from King James would be generous enough, he took it another step further.
First, he took off each one of his shoes, signed both of them, then threw them into the crowd. Then he pulled down his basketball shorts—leaving the 29-year-old athlete in his black underwear on stage and causing hysteria with the crowd—signed those and tossed those to the screaming admirers as well.
Earlier this month, the power forward announced that he was headed back to play for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
"Before anyone ever cared where I would play basketball, I was a kid from Northeast Ohio. It's where I walked. It's where I ran. It's where I cried. It's where I bled. It holds a special place in my heart. People there have seen me grow up. I sometimes feel like I'm their son. Their passion can be overwhelming. But it drives me," he said in an interview with Sports Illustrated.
He finished off the speech with one final thought, "My goal is still to win as many titles as possible, no question. But what's most important for me is bringing one trophy back to Northeast Ohio…I'm ready to accept that challenge. I'm coming home."
