It’s halftime now, but it’ll be back soon. Breath it in, ladies and gentlemen: it’s the closest we’ll get to NBA basketball in a while.


Team Melo vs. Team Philly (live stream)

Team Melo was no one-shot deal.

Nearly a month after entertaining thousands in Baltimore, the star-studded group of Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James, Chris Paul and Kevin Durant will return for another lockout showcase, this time against Team Philly at the Palestra on Sept. 25 at 6 p.m. ET.

 Philadelphia product and current Phoenix forward Hakim Warrick, the brains behind the organization of Team Philly, has assembled a roster that includes 76ers guard Lou Williams and Pennsylvania-bred pros John Salmons, Marcus and Markieff Morris, Wayne Ellington, Jason Thompson, Ronald Murray and Tyreke Evans. The only missing pieces to the team are a coach and the possible addition of Lower Merion product Kobe Bryant.
