Tonight’s highly-anticipated, star-studded matchup has been moved to a larger facility to accomodate the crowd. Reports the WaPo: “Organizers for Tuesday’s star-studded exhibition in Baltimore featuring LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul and Kevin Durant have found a new venue to possibly meet the high demand of a rapidly planned event. Morgan State University has agreed to host the game 7 p.m. at Edward P. Hurt Gymnasium, which has a capacity of about 4,500 people. We’re getting a bigger gym! (Mike Ehrmann) The game originally was scheduled at St. Frances Academy, but Kurk Lee, the athletic director of Anthony’s Melo Center in Baltimore and head of the summer pro-am in his name, had concerns that the 1,000-seat facility may have been too small to accommodate the expected crowd. When 100 $28 tickets were made available last week, they were sold out in less than a day. To cut down on the risk of people selling counterfeit tickets, people will be allowed to pay admission when the doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets will be sold at a first-come-first-serve basis for $40 for general admission and $100 for floor seats. Proceeds will go towards various charities, Lee said.”
