James, Carmelo Help Pack The House For Exhibition
BALTIMORE (AP) -- Even during a lockout, the NBA still packs plenty of drawing power.

LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul starred in a hastily arranged summer league game Tuesday night that drew an overflow crowd at Morgan State University.

The big question is: Will these stars and their peers get the opportunity to perform in the NBA this year?

The owners and players union are expected to meet this week. Until a settlement is reached, fans with a thirst for professional basketball will have to settle for exhibitions.

The Morgan State arena holds 4,500, but there were hundreds of fans surrounding the court to watch the collection of stars in a rare performance in Baltimore, Anthony's home town.
