Maloof Bros. Aren't Bringing an NBA Team to OC, But They Are Dangling $1 Million to Pro Skateboarders
The idea of the Anaheim Royals helping to fill the cheap seats at the Honda Center is dead and buried--for now. He tried, but co-owner Joe Maloof isn't bringing the Sacramento Kings to Orange County. He is, however, bringing an opportunity for a professional skateboarder to win a $1-million-bonus as part of the Maloof Money Cup.
Chris Cole will be skating for $1 million.
The MMC event will happen in the fall, but an exact date hasn't been set. The event has been moved from the Orange County Fairgrounds to the not-yet-built Vans skate park in Huntington Beach. (That may present a problem.)
