If the Nuggets win the Western Conference finals, the Lakers could lose one of their biggest court-side staples: Jack Nicholson.
Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper raised the stakes Wednesday in his mayoral basketball wager with Los Angeles, saying the Nuggets will take the Hollywood star if they beat the Lakers and reach the NBA finals.
Hickenlooper was responding to Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's proposed bet the day before, in which he offered to give Denver the Los Angeles Times to replace the now-defunct Rocky Mountain News if the Lakers lose.
If the Lakers win, Villaraigosa says Los Angeles should get some of Colorado's snow to alleviate California's drought.
Villaraigosa called his proposal a "win-win for our cities."
