Expecting the San Antonio Spurs to soon complete the drive for five NBA championships, San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro made a friendly wager Thursday with Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez on the outcome of the upcoming NBA Finals.
If the Spurs come out on top, Mayor Gimenez will have some of South Florida's famous stone crabs sent out to San Antonio. If the Heat win the series, Mayor Castro has promised to send a batch of San Antonio Chef Johnny Hernandez’s “El Machito” food down to Miami-Dade County.
"Revenge is best served with a plate of Joe's Stone Crab," joked Mayor Castro. "As much as I want Mayor Gimenez to taste Chef Johnny Hernandez's unique food, the Spurs will win their fifth NBA title this year."
"Although I'd enjoy sharing delicious stone crabs with my friend Mayor Castro, I expect our Miami Heat 3-peat. I'm looking forward to receiving the delicious food Mayor Castro will be shipping from San Antonio,” said Mayor Gimenez. “Go Heat!”
