Oklahoma City Thunder Co-Owner Dies in Car Crash: Aubrey McClendon, a 20 percent owner of the NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder, died Wednesday when his car struck a highway embankment. He was 56. A day earlier, the Department of Justice indicted McClendon for conspiring to suppress prices paid for oil and natural gas leases. Police told Reuters he had "plenty of opportunity to get back on the roadway and that didn't occur."

McClendon was once fined $250,000 by the NBA for telling the truth. He told a reporter that his group "didn't buy the Seattle SuperSonics to keep them in Seattle."
