Miami Mayor Loses Bet to Denver Mayor Over NBA Finals
Miami Mayor, Francis X. Suarez, has lost a friendly wager with Denver Mayor Michael Hancock over the 2023 NBA Finals. The Denver Nuggets faced off against the Miami Heat for the championship, with the Nuggets ultimately coming out on top and claiming the Larry O’Brien Trophy.
Before the series began, Mayor Suarez had made a bet with Mayor Hancock, promising to send a shipment of Miami’s famous Cuban sandwiches to Denver if the Heat won. However, if the Nuggets emerged victorious, Mayor Hancock would receive a shipment of Miami’s delicious pastelitos.
True to his word, Mayor Suarez sent the pastries to Mayor Hancock’s office, accompanied by a note congratulating Denver on their win. The Mayor’s office released a statement saying, “While we’re disappointed with the outcome of the Finals, we honor the commitment made between the two Mayors and wish the Denver Nuggets a well-deserved victory.”
The series was hard-fought, with both teams putting up a valiant effort. The Heat’s Jimmy Butler and the Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic were both standout players in the Finals, with Jokic being named Finals MVP.
With this series in the books, NBA fans are already looking forward to the next season and the competition it will bring. In the meantime, Mayor Suarez and Mayor Hancock can enjoy the culinary delights of each other’s cities.
