Via the Sun-Sentinel, rosters for the Heat’s charity All-Star game are set. The game is Sunday at Florida International (Isiah Thomas is hosting) and is going to be streamed online at 6:30 p.m. CT.
Playing for Team LeBron: Chris Bosh, Jamal Crawford, Kevin Durant, Jonny Flynn, Rudy Gay, LeBron, Damon Jones, Rajon Rondo, Russell Westbrook and Lou Williams.
Playing for Team Wade: Carmelo Anthony, Caron Butler, Mario Chalmers, Eddy Curry, Wesley Matthews, Chris Paul, Amare Stoudemire, Dwyane Wade, John Wall, Dorell Wright.
Who has the edge here? I’m super-biased, so I would say Team LeBron regardless, but really, it seems a lot better. LeBron, KD, Rondo, Westbrook and Chris Bosh? That’s pretty stinking good. Now Melo, Chris Paul, Amare, Wade and John Wall is solid too, so obviously it’ll be a close game. Eddy Curry will probably be the difference-maker for Team Wade, so look out.
Proceeds from the event will go towards Mary’s Court Foundation, a foundation established in honor of Thomas’ mother, the late Mary Thomas. A portion of those contributions will support FIU’s First Generation Scholarship Fund, which provides financial aid to students who will be the first generation in their families to earn a college degree.
