Miami Heat superstar LeBron James has a broken nose and thus his availability for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bulls is up in the air.

The Heat’s coaching staff says his availability will be made around game-time.

James’ nose was broken in Thursday night’s game at Oklahoma City when Serge Ibaka accidentally struck him on the way to the basket.

James missed the final 5:50 of the game.

 

Sacramento group bids to keep NBA’s Kings in town

The NBA’s Sacramento Kings have been rumored to be up for sale and moving to Seattle.

On Friday, the NBA received an offer from Mark Mastrov, founder of 24 Hour Fitness, and billionaire Ron Burkle, to buy the Kings franchise and keep the team in town.

A few weeks ago, it was reported that a Seattle group had signed an agreement to buy the Kings from the Maloof family.

If the league blocks the deal to move the team to Seattle, which has been wanting the NBA to come back since the SuperSonics moved to Oklahoma City in 2008, the Maloof family would still have to agree to sell the franchise to any buyer they so choose.

The Kings over the years have been a relocating franchise. They started out as the Rochester Royals (1945-1957), the Cincinnati Royals (1957-1972), Kansas City-Omaha Kings (1972-1975), Kansas City Kings (1975-1985) and in Sacramento 1985-to the present time.

Sacramento Kings might be moving to Seattle; new ownership group have filed papers

The Sacramento Kings might be on the move to the Northwest.

NBA commissioner David Stern has said that the group that has reached an agreement to purchase the Kings formally have filed the necessary paperwork to relocate the franchise to Seattle.

Seattle, which used to be home to the SuperSonics from 1967 to 2008 when the owners moved the franchise to Oklahoma City, has been pleading for the NBA to come back.

The new ownership group, headed by Chris Hansen and Steve Ballmer, are “very strong”  says Stern and the NBA committees will look over the proposed sale of the Kings and their possible relocation to Seattle, Washington.

Prelude to the Dream race has been a big hit with fans, drivers; big help for Feed the Children

 

Eight years ago NASCAR driver Tony Stewart, who also is the owner of Eldora Speedway in the Darke County city of Rossburg, Ohio, came up with an idea of having an All-Star race with drivers from all phases of auto racing to entertain fans and to also help the Feed the Children charity.

It is now 2012, and the race has become bigger than even Stewart could’ve visioned.

He is getting drivers to give up an “off-day” to participate in the race; the race is televised on HBO Pay-per-View to a national audience; the race attracts crowds of 20,000-plus; hundreds of thousands of dollars is being raised and the media has jumped on board as well. I was told there was between 100-150 members of the media covering last night’s race.

Also, everybody donates their time: drivers, pit crews and TV announcers.

All of this in the tiny town of Rossburg, which is located between Versailles and Greenville. Rossburg is actually a village of 250 people. It is home to Eldora Speedway, a half-mile clay oval track.

Feed the Children charity is the beneficiary of the Prelude race. The non-profit organization is based in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. It’s mission is “delivering food, medicine, clothing and any necessities to individuals in need, children, families who don’t have life’s essentials due to natural diasaters, war and poverty.

All of the money from the Pay-per-View telecast on HBO, is donated to Feed the Children.

Fans who attend the Prelude race, donate five cans or more of nonperishable food when they entered the track last night, received a free Feed the Children Prelude to the Dream poster.

All of the drivers, who finished in the top10 of the 40-lap race, Feed the Children will send a truck of goods to their hometown or any city of their choice. Tony Stewart, who finished second last night, said that he’s going to donate his part of the proceeds to the village of Rossburg.

Not only do the fans see the top motor sports drivers race the late model cars, the modifieds and stock cars that run regularly at Eldora, provide the undercard racing. Their are hot laps as warmups for the motor sports veterans.

The 2012 race increased the laps from 30 to 40 in the feature race and used double-file restarts.

The only drivers to race in every Prelude includes Tony Stewart, Ron Capps, Cruz Pedregon, Kenny Wallace and Kenny Schrader.
