Tickets for NBA stars in Miami sell out in 2 hours
Monday, October 3, 2011
MIAMI (AP) -- Tickets for Saturday's NBA exhibition featuring Miami Heat stars LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh have sold out in less than two hours.
Some fans arrived at Florida International University on Sunday night, more than 16 hours before ticket sales began. The game -- dubbed the South Florida All-Star Classic -- is expected to draw more than 4,000 people to FIU, where Basketball Hall of Fame player Isiah Thomas coaches.
Other players expected to attend include Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony, John Wall, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook and Amare Stoudemire. Proceeds are going to charity.
James and other NBA stars have played in several exhibitions this summer during the ongoing league lockout.
