(NBA) LeBron begins China tour
(07-22 11:37)

LeBron James began his tour of China on Monday by exchanging gifts with another former child prodigy.
The Cleveland Cavaliers' star was greeted pianist Lang Lang at the Wukesong Sports Center in Beijing in front of hundreds of basketball fans.
The two exchanged gifts, with Lang Lang receiving a pair of basketball shoes and James getting an album of Lang Lang's music and a CD with the FIFA Brazil World Cup music.
The two stars also played the piano together -- a "piano dunk'' as Lang Lang called it.
The five-day trip is being sponsored by Nike. James will also be visiting Guangzhou and Hong Kong, and two cities in Taiwan _ Kaohsiung and Taipei.
Earlier this month, James left the Miami Heat and re-signed with the Cavaliers. --AP
