Found June 22, 2013 on Diehardsport:
I know that they make a commercial for each team to sell their championship apparel to their fans, but running both of them?  Everyone knows that the gear of the losing team gets sent off to a third world country, but apparently NBA TV didn’t pay closely attention enough to which ad they were supposed to be running.  I’m sure San Antonio Spurs fans would love towels and t-shirts that said champions on them, but purchasing the merchandise just isn’t possible.  Twitter obviously found this amusing.

Spurs championship gear commercial airs

Many of you know that championship apparel for the losing team of a championship game or series often ends up being sent to developing countries. But what about championship apparel commercials for the losing team? Until now, I've never seen one but below is a commercial the has aired multiple times on NBA TV this evening.     While I'd love to get the championship...

Thousands Of Fans Welcome Spurs Home At San Antonio Airport

The Spurs didn’t win the championship, but that didn’t stop thousands of their loyal fans from gathering at the San Antonio International Airport Friday morning to welcome home and congratulate their team on a very successful season.  Gregg Popovich addressed the crowd thanking them for their support: “You guys are the best that you do this when we lose. This is unbelievable...

Popovich's rep takes hit after Finals

Gregg Popovich is a grouch, a four-time NBA champion and a man not known for taking kindly to questions. He has made a whole persona of belittling reporters who ask questions he doesn't think are worthwhile, and that makes it ironic that he left unanswered some rather obvious questions about two major coaching decisions he made in the 2013 NBA Finals. In particular, check out...

Celebrate the Spurs for what they are

Amid a flood of regret, and a few tears, the question felt unseemly. Now is not the time to talk about the future of the San Antonio Spurs. Even if everyone is thinking it. The discuss and dissect the future of a franchise that's been on the last of its title legs for six years now almost robs the Spurs of this moment. This is a time to celebrate what they've done, not...

Duncan Offended By Retirement Question

Tim Duncan was asked if he may consider retiring following the San Antonio Spurs' disappointing Game 7 loss to the Miami Heat. “Can’t believe you’re asking that question,” he said. “It’s been five, six years you’re saying we’re too old. I’m not going to answer that.” Duncan was a First Team All-NBA selection and had a vintage performance in the NBA Finals...

Was last game the last of these San Antonio Spurs?

Tony Parker refused to consider it, though it can't be ruled out. Those last, agonizing moments of the NBA Finals may have been the last we see of these San Antonio Spurs. Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Parker have been together for more than a decade, through more than 100 postseason victories. They are proud winners who have endured some crushing defeats, but nothing ever...

Spurs Green denies partying with Heat after Finals loss

What do you do when your team suffers an agonizing defeat when a championship was within grasp? Well, if you're Danny Green, you go out to a Miami nightclub for a night of deafening loud music and mixed drinks. Unfortunately for Green, it also happened to be the same South Beach club that LeBron James and the Heat chose to celebrate their winning of the Larry O'Brien Trophy...

NBA Finals Recap: San Antonio Spurs collapse but legacy remains

The San Antonio Spurs were “oh so close” to bringing home their fifth NBA title in 15 years.  When I say “oh so close,” I mean they were up five points, and they were 28 seconds away from likely reeling in the Larry O’Brien trophy (key word being likely.)  ”It isn’t over ’till it’s over” and “it isn’t over ’till the fat lady sings” are phrases that will...

Remember When Tracy McGrady Scored 13 Points in 35 Seconds

The Spurs lost last night. Sad face. They should have played T-Mac more – that guy use to be incredible. Then all of a sudden he stunk. I really don’t want to comment on the NBA Finals, but LeBron James is the best player in the world by far. He may have screwed up with the whole announcement show, but he doesn’t deserve to have his legacy tainted by not winning titles. He’s...

Spurs have at least one run left

It has already started and given how close the San Antonio Spurs were to winning their fifth title, given the age of their stars and the growing powers in the Western Conference, I cannot say I completely blame anyone writing off the San Antonio Spurs. It makes sense. It is hard to imagine this Spurs team making this run again. But how much will next year's team look like this...

Video: Spurs on Game 7 loss

It was painful to watch as the San Antonio Spurs walked off the Heat home court in a Game 7 loss in the NBA Finals. It was the first time in the Spurs' history they lost in an NBA Finals. The Spurs spoke about the loss and needless to say, the pain of losing in basketball's grandest stage was evident on their faces. Tim Duncan: Coach Pop: Tony...

Tim Duncan drives motorized cart in Game 7 Taiwanese Animation Treatment (vid)

The folks who run NMA World Edition really do have their collective fingers on the pulse of American sports, so it should come as no surprise that they have created one of their patented Taiwanese Animation Treatment videos for Game 7 of the NBA Finals. And, as they are wont to do, NMA managed to [...]The post Tim Duncan drives motorized cart in Game 7 Taiwanese Animation Treatment...

LeBron James says Spurs' Green did not party with Heat

After capturing back-to-back NBA titles, the Miami Heat were celebrating in Miami when word got out San Antonio Spurs' Danny Green was out partying with members of the Heat. Considering Green and the Spurs were on the losing end, some rushed to judgment thinking Green was fraternizing with the enemy. Needless to say, it was much to do about nothing and Green took Twitter...

Report: Spurs ‘in the mix’ for Greg Oden in free agency

Back in August 2012, Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio wrote about how an NBA GM said the San Antonio Spurs were frontrunners to land free agent center Greg Oden. Fast forward to June 2013, just a day after the Miami Heat captured back-to-back titles, and now Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida is writing that the Spurs are in the mix of teams with the potential to sign Oden this...
