Lebron James honored by Nike with his own building. Adding to their World Headquarters, the new site will serve as the Beaverton-based Advanced Innovation team.
Lebron James: It’s Been An Honor To Be A Part Of Such A Great Company
Since joining Nike in 2003, Mr. James has had much success. Now, he is getting his own building. According to the Source, the campus expansion will feature a full NBA-size basketball court, 200-meter endurance track, 100-meter straightaway, and artificial turf training pitch.
Also planned is an enormous Nike Sport Research Lab (NSRL).
Proudly acknowledging the news, Sir James stated –
It’s so surreal, It’s been an honor to be a part of such a great company for the last 18 years. And to know that a building with my name will reside on campus — it’s truly an honor, and I feel truly special”
Set to open in 2020, the Lebron James building will be joining another planned structure…the Serena Williams building.
