NBA Coming off the Top Rope at the WWE

First, Yanni screwed up the scheduling in the NHL playoffs. Now the WWE and the NBA are butting heads over next Monday at the Pepsi Center in Denver. The best part is Vince McMahon knows he can't win this fight, but the man so loves playing the heel that he's milking this thing for every bit of WWE PR that it's worth. Unlike the NHL, which accommodated the date and adjusted the Penguins-Capitals series, the NBA doesn't seem like it's going to budge. ↵

↵Thoughts on that, McMahon? ↵

↵⇥Without a quick resolution, McMahon plans to send his trucks to Denver. ↵⇥

↵⇥"That's what we intend to do," he said. "We're going to show up." ↵⇥

↵This potentially sets up the smackdown of all smackdowns. A fight fit for the cages. In one corner, David Stern, who checks in at about 5-foot-5, 160 lbs. In the other corner, we've got McMahon who checks in at 6-foot-3, 248 lbs. ↵

↵I'm not a fight handicapper -- and it's obvious that McMahon will have an advantage when it comes to size -- but in the Rocky Mountain Rumble (If you use that, McMahon, I'M COMIN' FOR YA!) I'll take Stern, just as LSUFreek did. ↵
