  • Nike Announces Summer Hoops Schedule; LeBron Camp Moved to Vegas

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Nike released its summer basketball schedule, and the biggest change is that the always popular LeBron James Skills Academy will be moved to Las Vegas from lovely downtown Akron, Ohio.

    Why leave lovely Akron, where the event has been held since its inception in 2007?

    Because LeBron will be in Vegas training with the U.S. Olympic basketball team from July 5-12, so the Academy will overlap with that from July 6-9.
