This is a first… Game 4 is scheduled to be played Monday night, May 25th. Problem is, the WWE scheduled an event a year earlier for the same night.

ESPN: The NBA and World Wrestling Entertainment are grappling over a scheduling conflict.

The WWE announced on Monday that its May 25 show set for the Pepsi Center in Denver is in jeopardy of being canceled because the Denver Nuggets have a playoff game scheduled for the same night.

While the WWE anticipates a sold-out arena and planned to broadcast internationally, the Nuggets will be facing the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals. The wrestling federation says that they have had the date reserved since Aug. 15, 2008.

“Even though the Denver Nuggets had a strong team this year and were projected to make the playoffs, obviously Nuggets and Pepsi Center owner Stan Kroenke did not have enough faith in his own team to hold the May 25th date for a potential playoff game,” WWE chairman Vince McMahon said in a statement.

Pepsi Center officials told the ABC television affiliate in Denver that the Nuggets game will be played as scheduled and that they are working with the WWE to reschedule or move their event.

    Have the Nuggets forfeit, that would be much easier. The WWE is still big business and they did have that arena booked first, so it’s only fair. BTW that interview was hilarious. Its nice to see we made some more fans outside of LA.
