Just Shooting Some Hoops, Or Something More? LeBron In Saudi Arabia

A lot of sports superstars are making their way to Saudi Arabia these days and the biggest name in basketball is not an exception it seems.

LeBron James is one of the best players in the history of the game and although he hinted that he might make a move if the offer was attractive, there has been no official word on his future in KSA.

The pictures of the initial sightings of the MVP in Riyadh spread like wildfire on social media, prompting many to guess what is the purpose of his visit.

Youths at the Al Azem Academy were at a loss for words when the basketball legend showed up to practice with them.

But that’s not all as shocked Egyptians were having an AI moment as singer Ahmed Saad posted a picture of him and James; prompting many to comment on how Saudi Arabia is making things surreal for everyone seeing many stars donning Arab clothes and rubbing shoulders with local celebs.
