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.
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.)
