This is basketball without the NBA: an overheated Palestra filling with thousands of fans.

At 6 p.m., the "Battle for I-95" will tip off inside The Palestra on the University of Pennsylvania campus. Right now, there are two players warming up on the court: Team Philly's Lou Williams (76ers), Jason Thompson (Sacramento Kings). We know that Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James, and Chris Paul of Team Melo are already in Philly because all of them were spotted on the Eagles' sideline this afternoon at Lincoln Financial.

Here's what we know for sure (we're not yet ruling out a surprise appearance by Allen Iverson). Team Philly: Lou Williams, Jason Thompson, Lynn Greer, Ronald Murray, Wayne Ellington, John Salmons, Aaron Owens, Hakim Warrick, Tyreke Evans, Markieff Morris, Marcus Morris, and Kyle Lowry. Team Melo: Anthony, James, Paul, Kevin Durant, Gary Neal, Donte Green, and Josh Selby.

SI.com will be streaming the game live. You can find that here. I'll be Tweeting during the game, you can follow that here.
