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.

MICHIGAN EPA official resigns over water crisis A regional director of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency resigned Thursday in connection with the drinking water crisis in Flint, Mich., and EPA chief Gina McCarthy issued an emergency order directing state and city officials to take actions to protect public health. 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.

OKLAHOMA CITY - With Oklahoma City forward Kevin Durant sidelined with a strained hamstring he suffered earlier this week, 76ers coach Brett Brown said "it allowed me to sleep about 40 seconds more. That's it. There's not much sleep going on in Philadelphia lately. " Russell Westbrook is enough to cause some insomnia. So is the fact that, with the 102-85 defeat to the Thunder, Brown's team lost its ninth straight to open the season, becoming the first team in NBA history to do that in consecutive years.

Nerlens Noel is expected to return to the 76ers lineup Friday night against the Thunder in Oklahoma City. The 76ers power forward missed his second straight game Wednesday against Toronto because of sore wrists. "He tried to go today," Sixers coach Brett Brown said after Noel tried to participate in the morning shootaround. "He just couldn't hold the ball, and it's the padding of his hand. It just wasn't worth it. . . . So we hope to get ahead of the story and sit him now and reap the benefit of that with more of a complement of a team on the Oklahoma-San Antonio trip.

DeAndre' Bembry - the star of the St. Joseph's basketball team - was asked last month if he pays attention to other players and teams "around the league. " The junior offered a quick analysis of the NBA. He was happy to see Kobe Bryant return from injury. A good season was in the mix for Oklahoma City, Bembry predicted. The answer was sufficient. The only problem was that the question was about his league now, the Atlantic Ten, and not the league Bembry could find himself in as soon as next year.

MANCHESTER, N.H. - The norm for the 76ers, once again, is abnormality. That is nothing unusual for this organization since the rebuild started to take place a few years ago. Guard Isaiah Canaan is feeling the ever-changing ways the most right now. A certified scorer all his life, the 6-foot Canaan will be the starting point guard when the season begins Wednesday in Boston. Perhaps it's by default, until Kendall Marshall and Tony Wroten are fully recovered from the torn ACLs both suffered last January.

YOU KNOW all that talk about how playing different sports cross-trains athletes and insulates them from injury? Well, Sam Bradford played everything from hockey to basketball to baseball besides football growing up in Oklahoma City. He even dabbled in the cello. Some folks are just plain unlucky. Or injury-prone. And that's our remaining anxiety as the Eagles and their new quarterback prepare for Monday night's season opener in Atlanta. That Bradford, less than two months short of his 28th birthday, is one of those guys destined to be sabotaged by his gene pool, that no level of protection or safeguards will be enough to keep him healthy long enough to see what a quarterback with his surgical skills can do inside of Chip Kelly's pick-your-poison offense.

NEW YORK - There was a sense of optimism around the Phillies in recent days that Maikel Franco would return to game action before season's end. The rookie third baseman had taken ground balls and played catch for more than a week without pain in his left wrist. But that optimism was tempered Wednesday afternoon when Franco took 20 pitches of soft toss in a Citi Field batting cage. The same discomfort Franco had experienced resurfaced when he swung through the ball. The Phillies could shut him down for the season if his wrist does not improve over the next week.

MIAMI - Darnell Sweeney was getting ready to lead off and play center field in Oklahoma City on Wednesday night when he learned he was scratched from the lineup of the Dodgers' triple-A club. It didn't take much more than a scroll through Twitter to learn the reason. Sweeney's manager later officially alerted him that he had been traded to the Phillies. If that wasn't enough news, Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. called 20 minutes later and told Sweeney he was getting his first major-league promotion.

But Eickhoff, who will make his major league debut when he takes the mound to start at Marlins Park tonight, won't begin his career thinking he was one of the six players the Phillies received from the Texas Rangers for Cole Hamels (and...
