Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.



‘King’ James LeBron can thank Yao Ming for the billion Chinese fans of the NBA.

James can also thank Yao Ming for the sales of his many Nike Zoom LBJ V China Colorway.

Replicas of his St. Vincent-St. Mary High School jersey also goes for more than Y3,000 ($405).

Nike also sponsors the LBJ museum in Shanghai – all things LeBron.

James and Nike CEO attended as did some 2,000 fans.

James said he wants two crowns – and NBA title and a gold medal at the Beijing Olympics.

In 2004, James was a member of the US Olympic team that brought home bronze. “Bitter lessons” means that won’t happen again.

Nike – James “is competitive and skillful, and he will be in Beijing to compete in the Olympic Games next year, so I am sure his profile will continue to increase in China.”

Translated – Nike can still make a middle kingdom bus load of money of this 22-year with another dozen years to play.

And to think, they worried after MJ left.

If only LBJ will continue to work as hard throughout his career.
