BASKETBALL: A seat "near the rafters" for last night's Pacers-Bulls Game Seven was selling for $750 outside United Center. Courtside seats were going for around $7,000 (Steve Aschburner, Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 6/1)....The WNBA Liberty drew 12,399 to the Sunday's preseason game against the Mystics, including 3,000 Girl Scouts (N.Y. TIMES, 6/1). NFL: In St. Paul, Charley Walters wrote that Marc Ganis, who repped Tom Clancy's failed Vikings bid, "telephoned Vikings owners to apologize for the embarrassing mess in which he left them" (PIONEER PRESS, 5/31)....In Cleveland, Tony Grossi wrote that N.Y. developer Howard Milstein "tried to recruit" Step2 Founder Thomas Murdough to his Browns ownership group, but was "rebuffed." Murdough is also forming a bid group and said he wants "total Cleveland involvement." In addition, the NFL has "stopped sales" of luxury suites at Cleveland Stadium until an owner is named. About 12 to 14 suites will be left unsold, because the NFL "is preoccupied with selecting the owner, and the league wants to reserve a number of suites for the owner to sell at his discretion" (Cleveland PLAIN DEALER, 5/31).
