Governor Rick Scott Places Friendly Wager with Texas Governor Rick Perry on NBA Finals

5/31/2011 Tallahassee – In honor of the 2011 NBA Finals, pitting the Miami Heat against the Dallas Mavericks, Governor Rick Scott has entered into a friendly wager with Texas Governor Rick Perry.

“Not even Dirk Nowitzki will be able to stop Miami from bringing home another NBA title,” said Governor Scott. “It might be warm in Texas, but there is no way the Dallas Mavericks will be able to withstand the Heat.”

Governor Scott wagered a Florida Key Lime pie, while Governor Perry put up case of Texas barbeque sauce.

“LeBron may have taken his talents to South Beach, but there’s no way he’ll be taking the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy there this season,” Governor Perry said. “The Mavericks’ combination of teamwork and experience will overwhelm Miami’s raw star power, and at the end of the series, folks in Texas will be celebrating yet another NBA champion here in the Lone Star State.”

Game One of the 2011 NBA Finals begins at 9:00 p.m. Eastern tonight at American Airlines Arena in Miami.
