Kevin Durant, John Wall Headline DC vs Philly Exhibition
Fans in the DC area, be sure to mark your calendar for October 15:
The battle for I-95 continues as NBA superstars Kevin Durant (Oklahoma City Thunder) and John Wall (Washington Wizards) team up to represent the nation’s capital against Philadelphia’s cast of all-stars on Saturday, October 15 at Calvin Coolidge High School in Washington, D.C. Doors open at 4:30 p.m. and the game begins at 6 p.m.
Durant and Wall – who also competed with the Goodman League All-Stars – are less than a month removed from playing with Team DC in a friendly, inner-city exhibition and look to represent the District again alongside Jeff Green (Boston Celtics), Michael Beasley (Minnesota Timberwolves), Nolan Smith (Portland Trailblazers), DeMarcus Cousins (Sacramento Kings) and Greg Monroe (Detroit Pistons).
Tyreke Evans (Sacramento Kings), Hakim Warrick (Phoenix Suns) and Lou Williams (Philadelphia 76ers) lead the pack for Philadelphia who is fresh off a win over Team Baltimore – which featured powerhouse trio Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James and Chris Paul.
Prior to the game, children 12 years old and younger can enjoy interactive activities, including a mini-camp where participants will experience NBA-level skill instruction from local basketball trainer Hanif Hill. Registration for the camp is $20 (includes game admission) and will begin at 3 p.m. Adults accompanying their children will be required to purchase a game ticket.
Event tickets start at $30 and are available in advance online at dcphillytickets.eventbrite.com or at the door on event day. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to local youth sports programs and recreation centers. For additional ticket information, please email DCPhillytickets@gmail.com.
