1 comment

Rudy Gay announced today via Twitter that Lebron James has been added to the roster for Tuesday's charity exhibition game at the DeSoto Civic Center, adding the biggest name yet —┬ámaybe the biggest name possible — to what is shaping up as the closest thing the Memphis area may ever see to an NBA All-Star game.

Among the players who have been announced so far [UPDATED]:

Zach Randolph
O.J. Mayo
Kevin Durant
Chris Paul
Kyle Lowry
Corey Maggette
John Wall
Tyreke Evans
Nate Robinson
Penny Hardaway

Josh Selby
Tony Allen
Ronnie Brewer
Anthony Morrow
Jarrett Jack
Mareese Speights

Listed as possible:
Carmelo Anthony
Stephen Curry
Monta Ellis

It's probably not reasonable to expect every player on that list to make the game, but the bulk of them should be there, with others sure to be added. (I'm guessing Griz rookie and Baltimore native Josh Selby ends up in the game, and it sure looks like the game needs a couple more big men.)

Tickets to the game are $30 and available via and
