Rosters revealed for Josh Howard game
Surely it will be a fun-filled evening for all and proceeds will benefit the Josh Howard Foundation. However, with the exception of Seagoville's own LaMarcus Aldridge, the victim of a serious All-Star snub this past season, the rosters are rather thin of such pedigrees.
Nonetheless, there are some exciting, young guns coming to town.
Dallas Mavericks guard Jason Terry will coach Howard's squad -- the White team -- which, barring any late cancellations, will include: John Wall, Reggie Evans, Marquis Daniels, Quinton Ross, DeSagana Diop, Anthony Randolph, Damon Jones and Jeremy Evans.
The other squad -- the Blue team -- will be coached by Trevor Booker, and will include: Aldridge, Andray Blatche, Hamady N'diaye, Nick Young, Corey Brewer, Damion James, Isaiah Thomas, Jarrett Jack, Jason Maxiell and Damien Wilkins.
Tickets are available at JoshHowardFoundation.com,The Fade Shop and Ten Sports Grill. Ticket prices are $15 in advance, $25 on-site and $50 for floor seats.
And, if you can't be there, but are starving for some hoops, fans can watch the game via web-stream on TheBasketballChannel.net for $1.99.
