Dwyane Wade Brings NBA Superstar Homecoming Tour To Chicago

LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, Carmelo Anthony, and Chris Paul are coming to UIC Pavilion on December 7.

The NBA is set to enter a self-diagnosed "nuclear winter", but some of the league's biggest names are taking matters into their own hands to play basketball again in 2011. No, this isn't the leaked worldwide superstar tour, but it's something close.

LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony are set to headline a four-game stretch of exhibitions dubbed the Homecoming Tour. The tour will make stops in Akron, Chicago, New Orleans, and East Rutherford, New Jersey. The New York Times has the details:

James, Paul, Wade and Anthony have committed to play in all four games of the tour, which was announced early Monday. Proceeds from the tour, which will include events like food drives, educational programs and sports clinics in each city, will benefit the players’ charitable foundations. The tour sponsor Google+ will stream each game live on the Internet.

The Tribune's K.C. Johnson tweeted that tickets will range from $150-45 for the December 7 Chicago stop at UIC Pavilion.
