We're getting closer and closer to the 7:30pm tipoff for Saturday's all-star exhibition game being held at Florida International University. I imagine that the plethora of superstars who are playing in the game have already started making their way down to sunny South Florida so they can enjoy all the amenities that we have to offer down here, and my guess would be that there will be more then a couple reports of NBA studs making cameo's at different clubs and hot spots tonight.
While we have already seen the list of players who are participating in the event being hosted by Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh, now we can also see how the all-star teams will be split up. Be aware that there might be some last-minute changes because that tends to happen with these exhibitions, but for the time being here are how the teams shape up.
Team LeBron: Chris Bosh, Kevin Durant, Rudy Gay, Rajon Rondo, Russell Westbrook, Jamal Crawford, Damon Jones, Jonny Flynn, Lou Williams and LeBron James.
Team Wade: Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony, Amare Stoudemire, Caron Butler, Wesley Matthews, John Wall, Eddy Curry, Dorell Wright, Mario Chalmers and Dwyane Wade.
Follow the jump for a couple of roster fun facts...
Eddy Curry worked out for Heat coach Erik Spoelstra and President Pat Riley before the lockout. The 7-foot center is a free agent, and the Heat will be in need of one whenever the NBA gets going again. Since Zydrunas Ilgauskas announced his retirement, Joel Anthony is the only center who is under contract with Miami.
Another free agent is Caron Butler, but his participation is more interesting because he hasn't played since having knee surgery mid-way through last season.
Other guys who are coming back from injuries sustained last year are Rudy Gay and Rajon Rondo.
Former Heat 3-point specialist Damon Jones is the only player participating in the game who wasn't in the NBA last season.
Remember, tipoff from the U.S. Century Bank Arena is set for 7:30 and if you aren't going to the game, it will be televised locally on WBFS Channel 33 and streamed online at CBSMiami.com.
