    Default OT: NBA donating money to the Indiana-Kentucky All-Star Game

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=1992595

    Associated Press
    INDIANAPOLIS -- The NBA has contributed $1,500 to help support the annual
    Indiana-Kentucky high school All-Star basketball series. Indiana game director Pat Aikman of the sponsoring Indianapolis Star, who wrote NBA commissioner David Stern in December, received a letter and check from the
    league Tuesday.

    "Perhaps this seems like an unusual request, but it does offer the advantage of supporting both a long and honorable charitable tradition and cherished basketball tradition in the state of Indiana," Aikman said in his request to Stern.

    Aikman called the NBA donation "a dramatic and creative way to recognize the importance of basketball in Indiana." The series involving the best high school seniors from the bordering states has been played since 1939.
    I doubt this was Stern's attempt at an olive branch to the state of Indiana, and I doubt $1500 will pay for much, but it is a nice gesture anyways.

    Actually the check says $1500. The NBA books say $15,000. You can decide where the money went.
