OKLAHOMA CITY — Mayor Mick Cornett and Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez have made a friendly wager on the outcome of the upcoming NBA Finals.
If the Thunder come out on top, Mayor Gimenez will have some of South Florida’s famous stone crabs sent out to OKC.
Should the Heat win the series, Mayor Cornett has promised to send some of Oklahoma’s premium steaks down to Miami-Dade County.
“I personally love stone crabs and can’t wait to enjoy them at the conclusion of the NBA Finals,” Mayor Cornett said. “While we have a lot of respect for the Heat, we’re not anticipating having to place an order for some tasty Oklahoma beef. We’re looking forward to a great series.”
“I’m hungry for a nice Oklahoma steak, so hopefully our guys will go out there and bring back a trophy and dinner to go with it,” Mayor Gimenez said. “If things don’t go according to plan, then we’ll be sending some delicious Florida stone crabs from Joe’s to our friends out on the Great Plains. May the best team win!”
Oklahoma City knocked off the Dallas Mavericks, Los Angeles Lakers and San Antonio Spurs to reach the Championship round.
The Miami Heat’s path to the Finals included series victories over the New York Knicks, Indiana Pacers and a veteran Boston Celtics squad.
