World All-Star Classic in Puerto Rico 'postponed'

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) -- Organizers say a scheduled exhibition game including NBA stars has been postponed and will be rescheduled next week.

A spokeswoman for the World All-Star Classic -- set to include Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and Dwyane Wade -- says a new date will be announced by Nov. 3.

According to an earlier press release, the game was also going to feature Amare Stoudemire, Blake Griffin, Carlos Boozer, Chris Kaman, Chris Bosh, Dwight Howard, Kevin Garnett, Kevin Love, Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo and Tyson Chandler.

NBA players have taken part in many charity exhibition games across the country during the lockout.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to various charities on behalf of the players and the event.
