Now Philadelphia wants in on the action. Suns forward Hakim Warrick is trying to organize some players from the city of Brotherly Love to take on Baltimore’s Melo league in a showcase, reports Marc Stein at ESPN.
Warrick told ESPN.com that he and (Carmelo) Anthony, former college teammates at Syracuse, spoke Wednesday and have tentatively arranged to stage an exhibition game in Philadelphia before the end of September.
“I was trying to do a Philly and Baltimore game awhile ago,” Warrick said. “Then when I saw Drew League vs. Goodman League and Team Melo vs. Goodman [on Tuesday night], I was like, ‘Man, let me go ahead and set this up.’
Philly could put together a serious lineup if everyone is in — Tyreke Evans, Jameer Nelson, Rip Hamilton and Lou Williams. Now, if Melo pulls out the LeBron James, Chris Paul lineup it may not matter. But it would be fun.
