In other news, John Hickenlooper, mayor of Denver, had some zingers for the mayor of Los Angeles:
If the Nuggets go to the finals, [L.A. Mayor] Villaraigosa also offered to give Denver first dibs at buying the historic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, which California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has proposed selling in light of the state's financial crisis.
Hickenlooper said he'd pass.
"We have a pro football stadium with a pro football team," he said.
