For one, they’re up against Kobe Bryant and the Lakers in what, if game one is any indication, will be a great series. But there’s another storyline developing here too…
World Wrestling Entertainment’s Vince McMahon is ‘calling out’ Nuggets owner Stan Kroenke and challenging him to a steel-cage match. Why, you ask?
Well here’s what happened:
Kroenke and McMahon were tag-team partners earlier this year…but during a McMahon fight with Triple-H, Kroenke teamed up with the other guy and double-crossed McMahon with a chair to the back mid-match...costing him the championship belt.
Just kidding, both the Nuggets and the WWE are scheduled to hold events on Monday at the Pepsi Center in Denver – but McMahon DID actually challenge Kroenke to a steel-cage match!
The NBA will likely win this battle, but if they don’t, at least it won’t be as embarrassing as when the Pittsburgh Penguins rescheduled game five against Washington because of a Yanni concert (against league rules…seriously, the NHL has NO backbone…YANNI?!).
The WWE is trying to find somewhere else to have the event, including the Staples Center, home of the Nuggets current opponents, but they say if worst comes to worst – they’ll set up in the Pepsi Center parking lot.
Either way, the home fans could be in for a fight – you never know when Carmelo Anthony might punch someone!
