From the gimmicky state vs. state/city vs. city pre-finals bet files:
Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is stepping things up with his proposal to Boston's Thomas Menino for the NBA Finals. You can read his full letter below the jump, but here's the good part:
If the Celtics win, we'll send you the best professional football team L.A. has to offer: the Arena League's Los Angeles Avengers.
If the Lakers win, we get the Patriots.
Villaraigosa is a UCLA grad. Take that, Reggie Bush!
