As the Miami Heat prepare for their NBA Finals showdown with the San Antonio Spurs, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez has something besides pride riding on the outcome.
He said on the eve of the Finals that he’s made a “friendly wager” with Julian Castro, the mayor of San Antonio.
“Mayor Castro and the Spurs are doing great things for the City of San Antonio, but I know our Miami Heat will get the job done and provide the opportunity to enjoy some awesome Tex-Mex from Mi Tierra Café Y Panadería,” Gimenez said in a statement. “And if things don’t happen to go our way, we’ll send our friends out west some mouthwatering stone crabs from world-famous Joe’s Stone Crab.”
LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and the Heat take on Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and the Spurs in Game 1 at AmericanAirlines Arena Thursday at 9 p.m.
