Florida, Texas governors make friendly NBA Finals wager

NBA finals

Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Texas Gov. Rick Perry have agreed to a friendly wager on the outcome of the NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs.

Perry will send a 3 lb. cinnamon roll from Lulu’s Bakery and Café in San Antonio to Tallahassee if Miami wins; Scott will send Whetstone Chocolates from St. Augustine to Austin if San Antonio wins, according to a statement from Scott’s office.

“Coach Erik Spoelstra and the Miami Heat have had an incredible run and I look forward to a great series,” Scott said. “I am confident that the Heat will be bringing home a third straight title and I look forward to them cementing their legacy as one of the greatest basketball teams of all time. Go Heat.”

Perry accepted the challenge, throwing in a little trash talk for the upcoming series.

“The Heat are aptly named because they’re all sizzle and no steak,” Perry said in the statement. “While the Heat got lucky last year, the Spurs are proof of the power of teamwork and dedication to craft, qualities that will help them bring the O’Brien Trophy back to the Lone Star State.”

The beginning of a seven-game series for the NBA Championship and the Larry O’Brien Trophy starts Thursday at the AT&T Center in San Antonio.
