Honda Center owners Henry and Susan Samueli were joined by Anaheim city leaders Wednesday in a groundbreaking ceremony for a $20-million project described as the most extensive upgrade in the venue's history. The city maintains a strong interest in luring the NBA's Sacramento Kings. Anaheim is awaiting a March 1 deadline Kings owners have for Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson to reveal a financing plan to build an arena in Sacramento.

On an afternoon when the cash register didn't stop dinging until it hit a California boxing record $601,000, workmanlike Tony Lopez successfully turned back a challenge to his junior-lightweight championship by Mexico's Jorge Paez. Lopez, who won a unanimous decision Saturday before 15,008 at Arco Arena, didn't attract the biggest crowd to see a California fight, but the gate broke the record of $476,000 Muhammad Ali and Ken Norton have held since their second fight in 1973, at the Forum.

Kobe Bryant's late three-point basket Wednesday night changed just about everything for the Lakers, sparing their fans a demon dose of angst heading into the playoffs. … Without it, the Lakers fall to No. 3 in the West, face the Portland Trail Blazers in the first round instead of the New Orleans Hornets and probably open the second round at Dallas. … It could reverberate for weeks. … Bryant, on the Lakers' blowing a 20-point fourth-quarter lead against Marcus Thornton and the Sacramento Kings in what may have been the last NBA game played in the state capital: "I guess some of the ghosts from the past are still haunting us. " … The building known as Arco Arena during the Kings' Chris Webber -led heyday ranks among the best in the NBA to watch a game, its intimacy creating a collegiate atmosphere.

Here, though, the focal points were the three Kings and co-owners, the brothers Maloof, sitting in the front row across from the Sacramento bench, looking happier and more engaged as the game progressed.
