To nobody's surprise, Filipinos are visibly excited that Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James is returning to Manila.
Filipinos are already welcoming King James to the country ahead of his Strive for Greatness Show at the Mall of Asia Arena tomorrow, September 2.
Fans took to LeBron's Twitter account to voice just how happy they are that The King will be making his long-awaited comeback.
After tweeting that he's "Excited to get back," Pinoy netizens, including local athletes offered some of that signature hospitality.
On my way to Manila! Excited to get back. #StriveForGreatness🚀— LeBron James (@KingJames) September 1, 2017
TNT big man Ranidel De Ocampo replied to The King like they go way back.
Ingat brad!— Ranidel De Ocampo (@jutaca33) September 1, 2017
Azkals goalkeeper Neil Etheridge feels a bit down because he's so near, yet so far from LeBron.
Meanwhile, this user asked the 13-time NBA All-Star to buy him and his family some buko pie.
Ingat kuya. Dala ka daw buko pie. Yung susi iniwan ni mama sa ilalim ng paso. Buksan mo nalang pag wala pa kami bukas.— ㅤ (@princeraniell) September 1, 2017
This Pinoy fan kept things short and sweet, and he's ready to treat LeBron for some coffee... Among other things.

This guy on the other hand, is hitting the books (so he says) while waiting for LeBron to arrive.
Ingat ka pare. Dito lang ako sa dorm nagaaral. Text mo ako pag nasa court ka na!— Derick Gomez (@derrickTIONS) September 1, 2017
This lady meanwhile, invited LeBron for a homecooked meal, care of her mother.

This fan wants The King to try some balut. For his knees maybe?
