Chris Bosh, LeBron James & Dwyane Wade Organize the “South Florida All-Star Classic” Which Features Several Top NBA Stars

The Miami Heat’s Big 3 have come together to organize the “South Florida All-Star Classic.” After a summer that saw several Pro-Am’s across the country have major participation from NBA players, the trend will continue with this event organized by LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

Check the details:

The game will be held on Oct. 8 at 7 p.m. ET at Florida International University, where Hall of Famer Isiah Thomas is coach. All proceeds will go toward a charity supporting the educational community of South Florida.

A number of NBA players are slated to join the Miami trio on the court, including fellow Heat teammate Mario Chalmers, the Oklahoma City Thunder‘s Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, the New York Knicks‘ Carmelo Anthony, Amare Stoudemire, the New Orleans Hornets‘ Chris Paul, theWashington Wizards‘ John Wall, the Atlanta Hawks‘ Jamal Crawford and Joe Johnson, theHouston Rockets‘ Jonny Flynn, the Los Angeles Clippers‘ Eric Bledsoe, the Dallas Mavericks‘Caron Butler, the Memphis Grizzlies‘ Rudy Gay, the Boston Celtics‘ Rajon Rondo, thePhiladelphia 76ers‘ Lou Williams, the Golden State Warriors‘ Dorell Wright, and the Portland Trail Blazers‘ Wesley Matthews and free agent Eddy Curry.

The squads will be headlined by Brand Jordan players (Wade, Anthony, Paul) vs. Nike (James, Bosh, Durant). Comedian Kevin Hart, who has appeared in Brand Jordan commercials with Wade, is expected to coach the Jordan team, while Miami-based rap star Rick Ross is expected to coach the Nike club.

FIU’s U.S. Century Bank Arena can hold 5,000 fans.

I love this, fans get to see some of their favorite players and it’s all for charity. I’m sure South Florida fans will show up in droves especially when you consider that Alonzo Mourning’s annual ‘Zo’s Summer Groove” game couldn’t take place this summer because of lockout restrictions 9Zo is a Heat executive so contact with the players is forbidden)
