The NBA won't be playing anytime soon, following a breakdown in talks over a new collective bargaining agreement. Still, those willing to financially support President Barack Obama could get to see their favorite NBA stars play some hoops next month.
The game will be played Dec. 12 at a Washington venue to be determined. Tickets are available at four prices: $100 and $200 for general admission, $500 for the lower deck, and $5,000 for courtside. Players confirmed to be participating include Carmelo Anthony, Vince Carter, Tyler Hansbrough, John Wall, and Dwight Howard.
Athletes who support President Obama ... will play actual games at the event in Washington, Michael Blake, deputy director of Obama's National Project Vote, wrote in an email sent to supporters that was obtained by Politico.
The game will also feature appearances from several retired players, including Patrick Ewing and Dikembe Mutombo, both alums of Georgetown University in the District of Columbia.
