LeBron, Wade set to headline Oct. 8 game in Miami
Monday, September 26, 2011
MIAMI (AP) -- Miami Heat stars LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh are planning to host about 20 NBA players for a charity game on Oct. 8.
Details are still being finalized and an official announcement is expected Wednesday. The game is being planned for Florida International, where Basketball Hall of Famer Isiah Thomas is a coach.
The game would be the latest in a series of exhibitions NBA players are participating in this offseason during the league's lockout. James has appeared in several of those contests, including one on Sunday in Philadelphia.
It will be the first time James, Wade and Bosh take the court together since last season's NBA finals.
