LeBron James To Plan Croatia Visit

One of the greatest basketball players of the modern era, Miami Heat’s LeBron James, has indicated in an interview with Croatian daily 24sata that he intends to come to Croatia after hearing about its beauty from his childhood pal.

James, who is a 9-time NBA All-Star and the youngest player in NBA history to reach 20,000 career points, is close friends with fellow basketball player Romeo Travis who plays in Croatia with KK Zadar.

“Romeo is one of my best friends! We have been like that since we were 18. I am glad that he continued his basketball career in Croatia. We are in touch a lot and I know he has done some great things there. He told me that Croatia was a great country and he invited me to go visit him. I would love to, I just need to find a time,” said James.
