The Hoops 206 Charity Basketball Classic, featuring current and former NBA players, is more than just an exhibition. Instead, organizers have made a day of it, with events set for before and after the game itself. A three-point competition, skills challenge and half-court shot contest are all on the docket, as well as a pre-game celebration of Seattle basketball outside the arena. It's a fun-filled celebration of all things Seattle basketball, and it's all for a great cause.
Here's the information for Saturday's NBA charity game at Key Arena.
