Chalk this one up to “oops”.
The NBA official online shop was momentarily selling t-shirts touting an Oklahoma City Thunder – Miami Heat NBA final last night, the shirts featured the Thunder logo with the words “BEAT THE HEAT” next to it.
While it’s clear this is nothing more than a NBA.com Shop employee’s error, this hasn’t stopped Boston Celtics fans from already claiming the league has pre-determined the result of their Eastern Conference Final, which of course is still being played.
As someone who has seen the Boston Celtics 2012 Eastern Conference Champions merchandise I can assure those fans that there is no such conspiracy.
The offending t-shirt above was removed shortly after it’s discovery.
The Celtics and Heat will finish up their series tonight, the game gets underway at 8:30pm ET.
