The star is currently on a promotional tour of China as part of the Jordan Brand Flight Tour, which celebrates basketball in local communities. The four-city tour runs from July 26th through August 3rd.

Melo even gets his own shoe for the tour, based on a Chinese opera mask.

There was no word on whether the panda was given a pair.
