SEATTLE -- The push to get a new NBA/NHL arena built in Seattles stadium district received a boost on Monday from Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. O.J. Mayo Bucks Jersey .Hes not just offering support. Wilson is becoming an investor.We couldnt be more thrilled that Russell is joining our partnership and continued efforts to bring the NBA and NHL back to Seattle, lead investor Chris Hansen said in a statement. As you are all aware, we have always kept our focus on doing this for the right reasons -- our love for our city, our love of basketball, and our belief that pro-sports has the ability to positively influence our youth and bring communities together in a way very few things in this world can.Details of Wilsons level of investment were not released, but he brings celebrity clout to a project that has seen progress and significant setbacks since it first started five years ago.Hansen has been the primary investor, with members of the Nordstrom family and former Seattle SuperSonics team president and minority owner Wally Walker also part of the investment group. Hansen called Wilson, A young, smart and passionate entrepreneur.Im blessed and excited to partner with Chris, Wally, Pete and Erik, and the greatest fans in all of sports to bring the SODO arena to our beloved city; there is no place like the Emerald City, Wilson said in a statement. The positive impact sports has on our kids and many generations to come, and bringing different cultures and people together is what motivates and inspires me.Hansen last month announced his intention to privately finance the proposed project in exchange for tax breaks. The offer would erase the public investment that was part of the original 2012 memorandum of understanding between Hansen and the city.The city has acknowledged Hansens intent while also opening a request for proposals for a possible renovation of KeyArena, the former home of the SuperSonics. The proposals are due in 2017.Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he was not surprised to hear of Wilsons involvement.He loves his community, Carroll said. I think hes interested in being part of something thats really special here. Miles Plumlee Jersey . Aaron Harrison scored a 22 points for Kentucky (6-1), which has won four in a row following a Nov. 12 loss to current No. 1 Michigan State. Julius Randle overcame a scoreless first half and added his sixth double-double in as many games with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Greg Monroe Bucks Jersey . Defenceman Yannick Weber scored the go-ahead goal early in the third period and the Canucks breathed a sigh of relief with a 2-1 win on Saturday night. http:///...o-bucks-jersey-c-12/ . -- Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Farmar will be out for roughly four weeks after tearing his left hamstring. HOMESTEAD, Fla. -- The fourth time, in a field of four, was the charm for Johnny Sauter.Sauter won the inaugural Chase in the Camping World Truck Series with a strong third-place finish at Homestead-Miami Speedway. He beat Matt Crafton, Christopher Bell and Timothy Peters in a race in which the highest finisher among the four drivers would win the championship.For Sauter, who finished fourth in the standings the past three years, the format produced his first career NASCAR championship. He did it in his first year with GMS Racing after leaving Thorsport Racing.I think a lot of people questioned that move, Sauter said of his move to the young race team.He wasnt sure he had a strong enough truck to get to the front until the last segment of the race.With 50, 60 [laps] to go, I was like, We really got something here and I started picking people off, he said. Im just a small part of this deal. The whole team executed flawlessly tonight.The 38-year-old has had a career year driving the No. 21 Chevrolet for GMS Racing. He won three races, had 12 top-five finishes and a dominant run in the Chase. Sauter won back-to-back races at Martinsville and Texas, and was runner-up at Phoenix last week. Sauters 13 career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victories tie him for 11th most all-time in series history.Crew chief Joe Shear Jr. moved to GMS Racing to work with Sauter, and the pairing delivered a title.I knew they had all the pieces in the puzzle, I knew it was a great fit or I wouldnt have done it, Shear said. Its just unbelievable. This is the greatest thing in the world.William Byron won the race -- his seventh victory of the season -- to wrap up the owner championship for Kyle Busch Motorsports. It was bitterswweet because it likely should have been Byron celebrating the driver title. John Henson Jersey. Byron was headed toward the win last weekend at Phoenix that would have put him in the final four, but his engine blew in the closing laps. He was eliminated from title contention after the failure.It feels awesome. Its incredible, Byron said of the win. This team has worked hard all year. Just had an unfortunate situation last week that we couldnt control.Busch collected the championship trophy for the second consecutive year and fifth overall.Such a spectacular season by William Bryon, they were flawless, all the way up until Phoenix, Busch said.Tyler Reddick, driving his final race for Brad Keselowski, finished second. Hes moving to an Xfinity Series ride next year for Chip Ganassi.Kyle Larson finished fourth, but led a race-high 76 laps.Crafton, a two-time Truck Series champion, was denied a third title after finishing seventh. He and Sauter waged a decent battle for position during the race, but a poor final run cost Crafton.I kind of figured it was a matter of time. We were just really bad on that last run for whatever reason, he said.Bell finished eighth in trying to win the driver title for Busch.Overall, it wasnt really our year, he said. Just wasnt quite good enough all year long.Timothy Peters was ninth and the lowest-finishing driver of the title contenders.Hey, all in all, we said in the beginning of Daytona that we wanted a shot, Peters said. We had that down here, and we came up just a little bit short. We know what we need to do over the offseason, and cant wait for Daytona. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
