Cavs get revenge on LeBronIn an unbearable season of losses, Cleveland got the win it wanted most. The Cavaliers took down LeBron James. Despite blowing a 23-point lead, the Cavs battled back and beat the Miami Heat 102-90 on Tuesday night, getting a dose of revenge against James, who was making his second homecoming visit to Cleveland since leaving last summer. J.J. Hickson scored 21 and Anthony Parker scored 20 for the Cavs, who were embarrassed by James and the Heat 118-90 on Dec. 2 — a night when Cleveland fans unleashed their hatred on the superstar. This time, James left the floor hanging his head. He finished with 27 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds. James even caused a stir during pregame introductions, when he failed to show up. “I was just using the restroom. Am I allowed to do that?” James said after the game, according to the Palm Beach Post.
Anaheim City Council approves funding for KingsThe Anaheim, Calif., City Council unanimously approved a $75 million bond deal to entice the Sacramento Kings to relocate to Orange County. The city council twice voted 5-0 for the measures to a round of applause from its packed City Hall meeting room, calling it another major step in luring the Kings to Honda Center. Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait repeatedly emphasized the city is borrowing no money and has no financial risk in the deal. According to every Anaheim official in the meeting, the city is acting as a conduit for a private investment by Henry Samueli, the billionaire owner of the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks. Samueli also manages the city-owned arena, and he’s putting his own money into a deal for $25 million in upgrades to Honda Center including a practice court and new locker rooms, along with another $50 million in moving costs that could include relocation fees paid to the NBA’s other owners. The well-traveled Kings’ move out of the city they’ve called home since 1985 still is far from a done deal, although this lucrative financing deal removes a major obstacle for Kings owners Joe and Gavin Maloof. The Kings must file for relocation by April 18, and the NBA’s other 29 owners must approve the move by majority vote.
