CP3 to Bring NBA All-Star Tour to N.O. in December

Angry about the millionaire NBA players who can't come to terms with their gagillionaire owners? Well, let four of the highest paid players in the leauge ease your pain. An all-star tour featuring the Hornets' Chris Paul, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Dwayne Wade is making a four-city jaunt to the hoop heroes' towns, and N.O. is one of the stops. The high-flying foursome will be at the N.O. Arena Saturday, Dec. 4. As Wade told ESPN, "This will be very neat."


The icons are still in shape after a training camp in Oregon, and have been talking about doing the tour for a long time, Wade said. Google Plus is sponsoring the trip, and will stream each game live on the Interwebs. To insure the games actually involve full court basketball, other stars like Miami's Chris Bosh will be involved. But the four aforementioned stars are the only guarantees on each of the journey's stops.


As shocked as the basketball world is that King James is willing to share the spotlight, there's even more surprise that the tour is coming to pigskin-crazy New Orleans at the climax of football season. Guess those are the perks of the league stepping in to run your team while they try to find an owner.


Tickets for the N.O. date go on sale Tuesday.
