Although the Sacramento Kings apologized yesterday for displaying negative images of Detroit during pregame introductions, the NBA has begun an investigation into the incident that could result in fines. Before the Pistons beat the Kings Tuesday night in Sacramento, fans were shown a montage of negative images of Detroit on the scoreboard above center court. They included abandoned buildings, boarded-up houses, burned cars and piles of construction rubble. Pistons players said they hadn't paid attention to the video display.

A group from Oklahoma City has agreed to buy the Seattle SuperSonics and the WNBA's Seattle Storm, the Sonics said yesterday. The Basketball Club of Seattle will sell the teams to the Professional Basketball Club LLC, headed by Oklahoma City businessman Clay Bennett, for $350 million. Bennett said at an afternoon news conference that whether the Sonics remain in Seattle for the long term would depend on whether the team can reach an agreement with the city to replace or renovate KeyArena.

Yesterday's final explosive assault on the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City provided a certain closure to one of the most vengeful events in American history. Only 100 pounds of dynamite and eight seconds were required to complete the destruction of the ghostly structure and bring a measure of relief, not just to Oklahoma City residents, but to an entire nation still suffering the aftershocks of a singularly hideous act of governmental defiance. Much of the frustration of Americans stemmed from the blast that destroyed 167 lives and our comfortable but false sense of tranquility.

What's so nerve-racking about the Oklahoma City bombers is that they don't fit, they're outside the game, and the "message" that cost the lives of so many innocents remains hopelessly garbled. Most newspapers and commentators describe the alleged bombers as members of the "far right. " Far aright of what? I say. Does that make them anarchists? Or fascists? In whose tradition? In what context? For example, the bombers appear to be anti-government, so are they anarchists? Do they, as some commentators have suggested, fit into that old and recognizable American and European tradition that stretches back into the 19th century?

The La Salle Explorers didn't have an easy time getting to Oklahoma City, and they didn't have an easy time once they got there. James Anderson scored 28 points, Marshall Moses added 18 points, and Oklahoma State never trailed on its way to a 77-62 win last night at the All-College Classic. After La Salle (7-4) had cut a 16-point deficit in half, Anderson and Keiton Page led the Cowboys (10-1) on a 12-2 run to restore the cushion. Rodney Green scored 22 points to lead the Explorers, but his three-pointer to stop the Cowboys' surge was his team's only basket in the final 9 minutes.

Sometimes there is solace just in having the right words to use, in being able to call something exactly what it is. I would like to thank President Clinton for the phrase "evil cowards. " Evil cowards killed babies in the springtime. Evil cowards made death in Normal, Okla. A pickup truck, they say. Of course: so normal in Oklahoma. The cop with the beer gut, so normal, with an expression of anguish on his plain face, rushing the dying baby to a fireman. All those voices - in agony, in shock, in rage - all with that twanging, normal Oklahoma accent.

Five years ago today, April 19, 1995, at precisely 9:02 a.m. the bowels of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City erupted in a crimson fireball that left a hideous gash - nine stories high - in the structure's facade. The devastation had begun with a flash of energy that was immediately followed by a frightening and thunderous explosion. The building's frame buckled in the heat. High above the ground, shrapnel filled the air. Countless civilians, along with tiny knots of federal personnel, were instantly injured or killed, many tossed from their chairs as the blast rushed through the building's infrastructure ripping apart elevators, splintering windows and crushing vents with a staggering destructive force.

The Oklahoma City Thunder haven't found any shortcuts as they try to climb to the top of the Western Conference. The Thunder's path through the postseason lined up so their first three opponents have been the only three teams to win the West since 1998. It started with the Dallas Mavericks, who were trying to defend their NBA title. Next up was the Los Angeles Lakers, who have won five championships since 2000. In the Western Conference finals, the Thunder will now face the four-time champion San Antonio Spurs.

We are horrified by the bombing in Oklahoma City. Nevertheless, human beings are working with each other, comforting each other, rescuing each other. Such events do bring out our magnificent human qualities. We are concerned that many people allow their fear and anger to suggest in- kind responses - bombing the countries of origin of those responsible, for example. People were making wild assumptions as to identities and motives. We are appalled by the assumption that those responsible are, for example, Arab terrorists or Branch Davidians, and we condemn any actions taken against any individuals who fit those categories.

WHILE SAM Bradford still may be Public Enemy No. 1 around much of Eagle Nation for having the audacity to miss two weeks of the team's voluntary workouts and requesting a trade after the Eagles moved up to the second spot in the draft to select Carson Wentz, there was nothing but love for him inside the locker room at the NovaCare Complex Tuesday. "He's still the leader of this team," tight end Zach Ertz said after the Eagles finished up the first of 10 voluntary OTA practices over the next three weeks.

The excruciating wait will be over Tuesday night. The 76ers will finally learn where they are slotted to pick in the draft after suffering the second-worst record in NBA history. Failing to get a top-two pick would be a major knock on their decision to sacrifice wins for a top selection for the third straight season. That's because next month's NBA draft is considered a two-man affair, with Louisiana State forward Ben Simmons and Duke small forward Brandon Ingram as the top choices.

CHICAGO - Bryan Colangelo has been a great sound bite. The 76ers' new president of basketball operations expressed many times that he hasn't ruled out anything in next month's NBA draft - including trading a top pick. His candidness has drawn headlines and fan reaction. But what he usually says afterward is often ignored. Perhaps that is because it's obvious and somewhat boring. "The lottery will define what we have to work with," Colangelo has said repeatedly. "It will bring more definition to the draft status.

CHICAGO - DeAndre Bembry will tell you that he isn't trying to accomplish anything. The St. Joseph's guard/forward is just here at the NBA draft combine playing his game. "I feel like if there are teams that really didn't get to see me, they'll get to see me," Bembry said. "They'll see that I can do multiple things on the court. " That's what happened during Thursday's scrimmage at Quest Sports Complex. The 6-foot-6, 210-pounder scored 12 points on 5-for-8 shooting. He also finished with three rebounds, two assists, one steal, and a turnover in 12 minutes, 46 seconds of action.

CHICAGO - One might think that Bryan Colangelo is way behind in the evaluation process for the NBA draft. After all, the June 23 event will come just 74 days after he was introduced as the 76ers' president of basketball operations. But Colangelo will tell you that he's far from behind. The 50-year-old said he never stopped scouting prospects in college and Europe after stepping down as Toronto's president on June 23, 2013. In fact, the two-time executive of the year said he carried on as if he was still running an NBA team, keeping a close eye on the day-to-day happenings around the league.

It's all about the talk now. Even though the NBA draft combine's on-court workouts are set for Thursday and Friday in Chicago, the top players the 76ers are considering chose to avoid action on the court. Instead, the players will concentrate on the interviews that begin Wednesday afternoon at a downtown Chicago hotel. So the Sixers will, too. "You want to learn more about the person," said Bryan Colangelo, the Sixers' president of basketball operations. "You want to learn more about their thinking.

JAY WRIGHT'S most talented team was unquestionably the 2005-06 edition. Randy Foye and Kyle Lowry were first-round picks that summer. Lowry, with Toronto, started in the NBA All-Star Game. Foye comes off the bench in Oklahoma City. Allan Ray (2,025 points) actually outscored his classmate Foye in college by 59 points. Will Sheridan, Jason Fraser, Dante Cunningham and Shane Clark battled opponents' bigs. And Mike Nardi was a critical piece for the devastating four-guard lineup. After playing professionally for eight seasons in Italy, Nardi is in his first season on Wright's staff as the director of student-athlete development.

McCarthy said that Susan Hedman, head of the EPA regional office in Chicago whose jurisdiction includes Michigan, was stepping down Feb. 1 so it could focus "solely on the restoration of Flint's drinking water.
