In a city that is currently without an NBA team, the H206 Charity Basketball Classic brings current NBA players back to Seattle for a charity event that honors basketball's contributions to the Pacific Northwest.

The H206 event consists of a "Seattle vs the League" format, where professional basketball players originally from the Seattle area take on those from around the nation. Current and former Celtics players Avery Bradley and Brian Scalabrine (respectively) will be a part of the Seattle roster, as both were raised in the area.

The full line-ups include:

Seattle Team: Brandon Roy, Jamal Crawford, Aaron Brooks, Spencer Hawes, Will Conroy, Isaiah Thomas, Martell Webster, Avery Bradley, Brian Scalabrine, Marvin Williams and Michael Dickerson.

The League: Michael Beasley, Klay Thompson, Brandon Jennings, Nolan Smith, Dorell Wright, Jason Kapono, Troy Bell, Pooh Jeter, Kyle Singler and Marcus Banks.

Events like these are a fun way for both NBA players and fans to get some basketball action during the lockout. I just wonder why Seattle native Nate Robinson isn't taking part in the event.

    Wish we could see Ray Allen present as well for all the things he did here during his time. Some of my best memories growing up are watching him play in the Key Arena. RIP 206
