NBA officials now expect the Kings to play next season in Sacramento, league executives told The Times on Friday. Whether the team, which was about to seek permission to move to Honda Center in Anaheim, stays in Sacramento beyond next season is yet to be decided. Officials say it will depend on Sacramento-area governing bodies and businesses fulfilling Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson's pledges to the NBA relocation committee last week in New York, including construction of a downtown arena for the Kings.

We'll build you a new arena, and we'll spend more than $500 million to do it. You sell all the tickets, hot dogs and T-shirts you can, for basketball games and concerts and everything else, and you keep almost all the money. The Sacramento Kings simply had to say yes, and help persuade voters to say yes too. But the Kings said no, all but sealing defeat of two measures on today's Sacramento ballot designed primarily for their benefit.

Millionaires Shaun White and Ryan Sheckler are among dozens of skateboarders who'll roll into the Orange County Fairgrounds this evening, seeking to enhance fortunes and fame during a weekend-long competition. But the real star of this show, by far the wealthiest, and without doubt the worst skateboarder, will remain behind the scenes. That's Joe Maloof, of the Maloof brothers. Joe and Gavin are president and vice chairman of Maloof Companies, a billion-dollar family enterprise.

Before Game 5, Coach Phil Jackson had no major retort for derogatory comments about him attributed this week to Sacramento King co-owner Joe Maloof. According to a report by the Bloomberg News Service, Maloof called Jackson "arrogant," said Jackson had been "cowering in the corner" during the Lakers' losses in Games 3 and 4 at Arco Arena, and said that he would love to force Jackson to admit that he had been outcoached in the series. "I don't know the guy," Jackson said of Maloof.

Rik Smits is coming out of retirement--but not to play for the Indiana Pacers. Smits, who announced his retirement in September, will play three games in November for the Dutch national team. Now that chronic foot and knee injuries have ended his 12-year NBA career, Smits can volunteer to play without any cost to the national team other than transportation and other expenses. "It's something to look forward to, something to stay in shape for," Smits said.
