D-Wade Beats LeBron In Charity Game At FIU

Comments: 0  | Leave A Comment

On Saturday night at Florida International University a team of NBA All Stars lead by Dwyane Wade defeated a squad anchored by his Miami Heat teammate LeBron James 141 to 140. It was a surprisingly intense charity game that gave the 4000 fans in attendance (and the players) a welcome respite from the current NBA lockout.

Nine players from the 2011 All-Star game were on the court including Wade, James, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, Chris Bosh, Amar’e Stoudemire, Russell Westbrook and Rajon Rondo. Other players included John Wall, Rudy Gay, James Harden, Jamal Crawford, Caron Butler, Jonny Flynn and Dorell Wright.

Comedian Kevin Hart “coached” Wade’s team and Udonis Haslem coached LeBron’s. Proceeds of the game will go to  FIU’s First Generation scholarship program to help students become the first in their family to attend college. It will also benefit Mary’s Court, a foundation set-up in honor of Isaiah Thomas’s mother. Thomas is the current coach of Florida International’s basketball team.
