With the NBA Lockout in full swing and no end in sight, many NBA stars are making alternate plans for this season. Lebron James is one such player, as he is planning a "Homecoming Tour" with fellow NBA stars Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, and Chris Paul. According to the Cavaliers Insider, the game in Akron will be played at Rhoades Arena on December 1st:

The game is part of a four-game homecoming tour according to the Washington Post:

The All-Star group is set to lead a four-game "Homecoming Tour," starting with a matchup in James’ hometown of Akron, Ohio on Dec. 1, followed by a Dec. 4 game in New Orleans, a Dec. 7 game in Chicago and culminating with a Dec. 10 contest in East Rutherford, N.J.

This is not the first event that James has played in during the lockout, as he took part in an earlier charity event in Oklahoma City.
