One thing you immediately notice at Nike Festival of Sports , currently ongoing in Shanghai, China, is the amount of equipments on site, the amount of sporting gears that are stacked, grouped, arranged, even corralled, around almost every corner. While there will be competitions within this massive venue, the purpose was to have visitors trying a new sport, like skateboarding. To alleviate the intimidation factor, Nike Skateboarding team members Paul Rodriguez, Eric Koston, along with Shane O'Neill and Omar Salazar started several routines around the indoor skate park on site. The event soon pique the interests of festival goers and one very famous basketball player, LeBron James, who gave a "shout out" to the Nike SB crew in a subsequent Twitter message. The Nike SB Skate Demo will continue for the duration of Nike Festival of Sports.
