Watch: LeBron James spends day at Nike HQ for huge kickball tourney

LeBron James spent Thursday at Nike’s palatial headquarters in Beaverton, Ore., taking part in a kickball tournament attended by a massive amount of people.

James’ Instagram stories documented his presence at the tourney, held at Ronaldo Field of the Nike World Headquarters, as well as the enthusiastic crowd reveling in the presence of The King (via ClutchPoints).

Additional photographs from the event surfaced on social media as well, which detail how James was wearing a shirt bearing the  defiant message, “More Than An Athlete.”

The shirt is a reference to how the Los Angeles Lakers superstar was castigated last season by a FOX News host who suggested he “shut up and dribble” instead of being politically and social active. James has taken to using the “More Than An Athlete” mantra as a hashtag on social media as well.

Setting aside the serious message of LeBron’s choice of attire aside, the day was more about having some fun. James even trolled a photographer trying to sneak a photograph of him. Watch as he embarrasses the photographer by turning the camera on her.

Good times.
