The daughter of an NBA player or coach must make certain sacrifices. The league's time commitment could hardly be more demanding. Maryland freshman guard Lexie Brown is a realist. She knows that her father - Sacramento Kings assistant coach Dee Brown - would have a difficult time breaking away from his team to watch Lexie and the Terps in Sunday night's Final Four game against undefeated Notre Dame in Nashville, Tenn. But she remained hopeful. “Every year since about 10th grade he's really missed a lot of my basketball seasons, but he's always managed to make it to the state playoffs and now the Elite Eight game,” she said Thursday.

The Kings, Pelicans and Trail Blazers agreed orally on a deal that will send Vasquez to Sacramento, restricted free-agent guard Tyreke Evans to New Orleans and center Robin Lopez and guard Terrel Harris to Portland, according to two sources who spoke to the newspaper on the condition of anonymity because the trade can't be formalized until Wednesday.

Barack Obama may already have been officially inaugurated yesterday, but don't tell that to the people on Washington's National Mall this morning: A second, more outdoor ceremony today will give the public a view as Obama starts his second term. Some of that public will be recovering from not-fully-remembered AFC Championship viewing parties, as the Baltimore Ravens start preparing for the Super Bowl . Finally, Lebron James did not spare his thoughts as the Sacramento Kings sold for a princely sum. See full details via the links below.

Why not Seattle? Shandel Richardson Sun Sentinel "The Lakers beat the SuperSonics. " Remember those classic words from rapper Ice Cube's 1993 hit "It Was a Good Day?" We haven't been able to use them since the Sonics moved from Seattle to Oklahoma City, but now it's time bring them back. With the Sacramento Kings in search of a new home, why not Seattle? The city proved it was able to support a team for several years. Seattle would be a better fit than Anaheim, another possible home for the Kings.

It's sheer audacity, bordering on madness, to suggest that the Los Angeles Lakers can win a fourth straight NBA title after emerging from a Christmas Day home loss to the Sacramento Kings with an 11-19 record. Isn't it? How in the world could the Lakers conceive of another victory parade down the streets of Los Angeles when they were supposedly left on the roadside such a short time ago? "The most difficult thing is not going to be able to get one victory against the Lakers, but to get four victories against the Lakers," said ABC/ESPN analyst Bill Walton.

There are hopeful signs, though. Forward Lionel Simmons is making a strong early bid for Rookie of the Year honors, and Travis Mays, another of five Sacramento rookies, is learning to play the point.

There is, of course, no way of telling whether the Sacramento Kings and Los Angeles Lakers will produce a Western Conference finals that can meet all the pre-series expectations. This much, however, is certain: If the two teams play half as well as they have talked in the lead-in period, this will be a series for the ages. The chatter started weeks ago as the Kings and Lakers battled for the Pacific Division title and best record in the league, claimed by Sacramento by three games. As the two teams made their respective way through the Western playoffs, they continued to take potshots at each other, and the talking has been nonstop on the way to today's series opener at Arco Arena in Sacramento.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - In the backs of their minds, the Washington Wizards know they stole a win last week at home against the Sacramento Kings, who came into MCI Center tired and ready to go home after an extended East Coast swing. There would be no such pilfering last night as the real Kings, the team with the best record in the NBA, slowly but surely blistered the Wizards, 109-93. Rested and relaxed and back at Arco Arena, the toughest place in the league for a road team to get a win, the Kings shook off a hesitant start, then methodically took Washington (26-23)
