NEW YORK (AP) -- The exhibition game featuring LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul as teammates will be streamed online by Sports Illustrated.
The game between Melo's All-Stars and Team Philly on Sunday night in Philadelphia is being called the "Battle of I-95." The four NBA stars will play for the Melo team, based in Baltimore. The Philly team is led by former Rookie of the Year Tyreke Evans of Sacramento and Hakim Warrick of Phoenix.
It will be the first live basketball game produced and streamed by SI.com. Paul Fichtenbaum, SI.com managing editor, says in a statement Thursday that "it promises to be one of our most ambitious live video productions to date."
The game at the Palestra starts at 6 p.m.
