As covered in an earlier blog post (you can find all of that information here: exhibition game) a game between "Team Philly" and "Team Melo" is scheduled for Sept. 25 at 6 p.m. at The Palestra. The game already included all-NBA rosters for both sides, plus Carmelo Anthony, plus 76ers combo guard Lou Williams, plus a bunch of solid NBA names.

Now it includes LeBron James, Chris Paul, and Kevin Durant -- four of basketball's biggest names (including Anthony) will be playing in Philly in two weeks.

Tickets for the game will go on *pre-sale tomorrow (Tuesday). For more information email Rahim Thompson at contact@thechosenleague.com*. Prices are currently set between $30 and $50. The game will be broadcast on the web on The Basketball Channel.

The game was organized by Rahim Thompson, who in 2002 founded The Chosen League in Philly.
