He tours the Asian continent. He vacations in Guangzhou, China. And obviously, he hires a "24/7 DJ" named "Bear" for his hotel room.
As LeBron James himself says: "#ThisIsLiving #Awesomeness"

"I got my own 24/7 DJ in my room," the baller boasts, punctuating the sentence with a satisfied shake of his Miami Heat-hatted head.
