Carmelo Anthony’s crew of All-Stars seems to be holding its own summer league: a traveling series.

Last month, the star-studded group with Anthony, LeBron James and Chris Paul faced Kevin Durant’s Goodman All-Stars in Baltimore, where they put on quite a show for the thousands in attendance at Morgan State University. Come Sunday evening, Carmelo’s friends will take on Lou Williams and the rest of Team Philadelphia in a showdown at the Palestra, which will be streamed live online at SI.com.

And now, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Marc Spears, Team Melo is headed to North Carolina, where — along with Durant and Dwyane Wade – they’ll play in Paul’s All-Star Charity Game on Oct. 1 at Winston Salem State University.

After that, the only hometown the traveling All-Stars will have left to visit is Akron, Ohio. Think that’ll ever happen?

    In case you missed it, LeBron dropped 36 — including a bunch of nasty dunks — as he and the Melo All-Stars topped the Goodman League, 149-141, in a Baltimore exhibition Tuesday night.

    Durant, who has become the face of pro-am and streetball leagues this summer, poured in a whopping 59 points, but it wasn’t enough to overcome Team Melo’s Big Three.

    Here’s a brief look at what the 4,500 fans at Morgan State University got to witness:
