Carmelo Anthony and Some Sixers Will Ball in Philly

Professional(ish) basketball comes to Philly

The Palestra—a temple of fundamental basketball—is set to regress for an evening of star-studded dunks, lazy rebounding and absentee defense as Team Melo vs. Team Philly comes to town. The event will feature a hodgepodge of NBA “stars”—including Carmelo Anthony—and players from the area in a pick-up game not unlike the ones that have been going viral with Durant and Kobe posting ridiculous stats. The Scoop isn’t a scientist, but is pretty sure that even Pepe Sanchez could have dropped 40 if no one was playing any defense. [The 700 Level]
