    All the superstars playing for the Baltimore/D.C. team, so hopefully Warrick really does bring our Philly fellas some help lol. If anyone living in Philly happens to go, please let us know how Lowry and our new rookie Morris play!

    Even in the charity game, LeBron has to be on the stacked team...:grin: Guess we can chalk up a win for the good guys...

    Good luck to the 215. Remember watching Lowry do work in the Big 5, and Ellington and Gerald Henderson tearing it up for Episcopal. Really thought Ellington was gonna be a better player than he turned out to be. Palestra is a sick, sick venue for them to have the exhibition; place bleeds tradition like few other gyms in America, and I so badly wish I was still at Penn and could hop over there. Security is gonna be a nightmare; the place holds maybe 9000 and the seating is crazy close to the court. If any of the players goes nuts like KD in Rucker...

    Yeah, I thought that line, "Will Warrick have to add to his already stellar Philly squad?" was rather funny. Even if they get Kobe they're going to get killed. CP3 and Lebron aren't from Baltimore/D.C., though, so hopefully the Philly team can bring in some outside superstar talent of their own.

    I'm excited that Marcus Morris is getting some competitive action like this, especially after his comments about Melo lol.

    Who else is there to help out? Deron is at Turkey. Kobe is at china or somewhere doing his tour. Doubt wade/bosh wants to play against Lebron. International players are out of such events. And old timers like TD/KG still seems to be happy putting their feet up. This is looking like it will be wash out. Unless somehow, Dwight and Amare lace up.

    Man this would be neat to watch. Team defense doesn't get played at these things, but 1on1 defense does. I wanna see if Marcus Morris can stay in front of any of KD, LBJ or Melo

    As a Penn graduate, I will be attending the game--should be a great time. I'll keep you guys posted how Lowry and M&M do. I remember reading that the game will be streamed on a website, however I forget what the url was. If I find it, I'll post it.

    No, but it will be streamed on SI.com and thebasketballchannel.net. Not sure if it's going to be free, though.
