NBA TV accidentally ran an ad selling 2013 Spurs championship gear (VIDEO)

Jun 25, 2013, 2:59 PM EDT

The Spurs did not win the 2013 NBA title, but that doesn’t mean that the championship gear wasn’t ready just in case.

With the NBA Finals needing a seventh game to be decided, there was good reason to have the advertisement ready to run moments after a San Antonio title was won.

Like the t-shirts and hats that were similarly already manufactured, however, this spot was never supposed to see the light of day. But it ended up getting some run on NBA TV, so go ahead, Spurs fans: Enjoy this visualization of what might have been.

    That’s a great story, but I read about it online about 4 days ago.

      Perfect. This will be in big demand from the delusional fans who thought the Spurs won game 6. LOL!

        Ah, hehateme2. You are so hilarious. You are one of 1,000 reasons people can’t stand Heat fans.

    Happens all the time since commercials are prepared with both teams’ goods.

    they will send the tee’s to Haiti.

    they should ad a sentence to the back of the tee

    but then came the last .28 seconds in game 6

    If I can take a break from the figurative victory cigar for a second; the Spurs were every bit as championship worthy as the Heat were. We’re struttin’ around all full of ourselves right now, but here’s not a Heat fan out there who doesn’t know that the Spurs had just as much right to claim themselves “the best” as we do. Ball just bounced our way this time.

    So I hope Spurs fans know this, and that they know that all the trash talking and “how you like us know” mugging we’re doing has nothing to do with them and everything to do with just about the entire East Coast and much of the Midwest. We know greatness when we see it, and the Spurs were great.

    We also know Not Greatness when we see it. And we’re looking straight in the eye of New York City when we say this (The team of course. NYC is the greatest city in the world. No competition. But the team is garbage.)

      Classy comment. Thanks, Spurs fan.

      3 straight Finals appearances and 2 Championships later and Heat fans still thinking about the Knicks? Sorry if our team pride is a bit much (which it is) but we’re just proud competitive people that will not take No for an answer, in our minds we’ll always be the best (even tho we aren’t) but we should just disappear like “Heat fans” after 2006 till 2010. Or you still mad about that whole Allan Houston thing 14 years ago?

        Heat fans thinking about the knicks? Why? DID THAT Allen Houston thing lead to a Knicks championship? (cue crickets)

    I want to buy some championship gear from the losers. Though it would be more fun to have something from a team that lost 30 years ago, so I can see if anyone notices how wrong it is.

    Will add that the gear is really generic, a bland logo and type treatment with Winner’s Name Here. These things have no personality.

    Spurs were great. If they had made a couple free throws down the stretch in game 6 then…

    But oh well. Back LBJ being a back to back finals MVP!

    Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes
