I’m in China!
What’s good everyone? James Harden, myself and my folks from Nike are on a mini tour of China right now. Like I promised, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m checking in with you guys from the other side of the globe, which is pretty crazy when you think about it.
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m over here promoting my shoes and getting acquainted with as many basketball fans as I can, just getting to know who they are and telling them all about the Thunder. I just want to put our name out there a little bit more and also experience something new, and this is the perfect way to do it. I think this will be a good thing for me, the Thunder and my sneakers and hopefully everything goes well. I had a lot of fun over here last year, when I went to Hong Kong.
This year IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m in Shanghai, Beijing and Chengdu. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be signing autographs and maybe shooting a few hoops, but itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s more about getting close and personal with the fans, just spending time with them, you know?
As far as the food goes, I love Chinese food and I want to try some new things over here. As long as it doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t make me sick! James has never been here so itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been cool to take it all in with him. My dadÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s here, too, and when we arrived to Beijing the other day we all went out to eat at this really nice restaurant called Domus.
But right now IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m still trying to get acclimated to the time change. It takes almost a day to travel here, and there’s a 12 hour time difference from D.C. By the time this goes up on my site for everyone in the States, I’ll probably be sleeping.
Here are some photos from the trip so far. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll try to post some more pictures and some video from my trip soon. If you’re in China and interested in keeping track of my tour, make sure you check out Nike Basketball’s RenRen Page.
Anyhow, I’ll hit y’all later. THUNDER UP!
