Paul George Kicks Off 2015 Nike RISE Tour in Asia (PHOTOS)

The 2015 Nike RISE tour will follow NBA All-Stars Paul George, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, and Kevin Durant as they travel around the world this summer—making stops throughout Greater China, Southeast Asia, and Europe. Their goal is to introduce basketball innovation and inspire the next generation of players, wherever they may be.

PG was the first to hit the road, with visits to Beijing and Manila this past weekend. George interacted with fans both on and off the court, and gave valuable demonstrations about the game. He also immersed himself in the surrounding culture, even practicing Tai-Chi with 30 kids from the RISE program.
