LeBron James knows how to party in style in Miami, but when he’s in China, he parties like a king — with his own 24/7 DJ.

The Miami Heat superstar posted videos Thursday on Instagram from his hotel room at the W Hotel in Guangzhou.

“I just gotta show ya’ll something,” he said in the video, which features the man who’s spinning the tracks all day during LeBron’s stay.

LeBron posted a second video on Instagram eight hours later, proving that DJ “Bear” was still in the mix.

“Yeah, he’s still here and he’s still rockin’. Crazy.”

LeBron arrived in China Wednesday to kick off the four-day Nike China tour in Guangzhou, Wuhan and Beijing. According to Nike, LeBron will be making surprise appearances to popular outdoor basketball courts to encourage young athletes to remain active during the summer.

When he’s back in his hotel room, the music will be there for him.

Said LeBron: “I got my own 24/7 DJ in my room.”

    In My Opinion

    Miami Heat sweep would challenge rosy outlook by Bobcats’ Al Jefferson

    I think that Charlotte Bobcats center Al Jefferson, not a star in the NBA but a good player, must lead the league in seeing the bright side, in trying to find the best in a bad situation. This talent figures to come in particularly handy in the next week-plus as his hopeless underdogs try to avert being swept in four games by the two-time, defending-champion Heat.

    IN MY OPINION

    Greg Cote: Miami Heat odyssey this time could be dynasty or dismantled

    The Heat on a playoff run is the annual gift we slowly unwrap together, our two-month emotional thrill ride ever since LeBron James grandly announced he was “taking my talents to South Beach” that summer night in 2010. Well, buckle up again, South Florida. Prepare for exhilarating highs and work-productivity lows. Prepare for late nights walking drained from the downtown bayside arena. Prepare for hearts to soar or plunge on whether a basketball swishes through a nylon net or bonks off a painted rim.
