East Coast, West Coast Sheriffs Agree To Friendly Wager on NBA Finals

The momentum leading up to the long-awaited matchup between the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics has garnered much attention, including from the sheriffs of both San Francisco and Middlesex County, Massachusetts.

San Francisco Sheriff Paul Miyamoto and Middlesex Sheriff Peter Koutoujian – colleagues and friends through Major County Sheriffs of America (MCSA) – spoke by phone this weekend, agreeing to a wager for charity.  

“It’s been 58 years since we’ve faced off in the Finals and I am confident that our Warriors are going to take the trophy,” said Sheriff Miyamoto. “But everyone will be a winner because the runner up has to make a donation to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of their respective county.” 

Besides the donation, the losing sheriff will pose for a photo, wearing the apparel of the 2022 NBA Championship team, which will be posted to social media. 

“Golden State and the Bay State are leaders on and off the court. Sheriff Miyamoto and I, as well as our staffs, have partnered through MCSA to improve our agencies and the crucial work of sheriffs.  However, this week we are rivals,” said Sheriff Koutoujian. “I have no doubt that Sheriff Miyamoto will be donning Celtics green come next week as we hang banner 18 in the Garden.”  

“Our only Green is Draymond Green,” said Sheriff Miyamoto. “I’ve already bought a blue and gold DubNation sweatshirt for Sheriff Koutoujian. I respect him and admire the work he’s done for his community but at the end of this series, we are hopeful that the trophy will stay in the Bay… the San Francisco Bay.”

Joking aside, the real beneficiaries will be the children of Boys and Girls Clubs in San Francisco and Middlesex counties.
