WINSTON SALEM, North Carolina – In the middle of the NBA lockout, several superstars came together to give back at Saturday's Chris Paul charity basketball game.

Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant, Lebron James, John Wall, Derrick Rose and Dewayne Wade were a few of the players that showed up and showed off to the fans.

Most notably, Durant led all scorers with 48 points in the game and he put together some nice dunks of his own throughout the night.

Chris Paul also tallied a double-double with 39 points and 11 rebounds.

Durant and Paul's performances helped them to the 175-146 win over Lebron and Wade's team. Wade had 32 and James added 30.

"I hope the fans are enjoying this, but I guarantee nobody is enjoying it more than us," said Paul after the game. "These guys flew in here on their own time. People say this and that about NBA players and professional athletes, but these guys are doing this out of the goodness of their heart."

Earlier in the week, Durant answered some of the questions on the minds of many via his web site.

KD posted a video to his site to "answer a few of the questions and concerns I've been reading from (his) fans on my twitter and facebook."
