Chelsea Star Meets LeBron James after NBA Icon Drops in on German National Team
What happens when greatness meets greatness? NBA star LeBron James met with Chelsea star Anthony Rudiger.
Rudiger met with one of his sporting heroes. The Chelsea star used LeBron’s brief stop in Berlin. King James is on his More Than An Athlete tour around Europe. His Chinese fans had the opportunity to meet their favorite player, too.
During his time in Berlin, LeBron also met with Jerome Boateng. Rudiger was thrilled to meet the king of basketball, and even posted a pic on his official Instagram account. “Living legend! Great honor to have met you yesterday!” the caption read.
He also presented the defender for both Germany and Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, Boateng, with a LA Lakers shirt. It was signed, of course.
LeBron James also spent some time with South Africa’s 800m athlete Caster Semenya. Semenya is the winner of two Olympic three World Championship gold medals.
“When the greatness meet up. You just made my year for showing up to watch me race. This is too much,” Semenya wrote on Instagram.
James is making his way across Europe as part of his Nike tour. The tour is quite a thing now, and LeBron uses every opportunity to meet with top athletes. He was pictured Paris Saint-Germain stalwart Neymar in Paris.
The king will soon return to the west coast of America to practice with his team, the Los Angeles Lakers.
The 2018-19 NBA season will start off on October 16. LeBron is a 14-time NBA All Star, and his new contract with the Lakers is the hottest topic these days.
Rudiger started his game with Chelsea, and he already begun doing his magic.
So, everybody is ready for the new season and their new teams. It will take some time for the stars to get used to the new game, but stars can do everything, right?
