The Cleveland Cavaliers star is in Manila as the special guest mentor of Nike Rise, a reality basketball documentary program  that put Pinoy streetballers to the ultimate challenge.

James will preside over a press conference to be held on Thursday before personally announcing the final members of the Nike Rise team that same night at the Mall of Asia Arena.
