The Zen Master may have some serious psychic powers.
On Thursday, Reddit user “fughp” dug up a 2005 Toyota commercial that features a Jedi incarnation of Phil Jackson and accurately portends the 2013 NBA postseason.
As most remember, hundreds of Miami Heat fans departed AmericanAirlines Arena with significant time still remaining in Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals. The Heat trailed the Spurs by five with less than 30 seconds remaining but mounted a furious comeback, eventually winning in overtime and staving off elimination.
The fans who exited early were left pounding hopelessly on the doors from outside, an event that’s eerily foreshadowed in this ad from eight years earlier.
Check it out below.

Pat Riley and the Miami Heat are back at it again. The Heat signed Michael Beasley to a $1 million contract yesterday.
Is this a bad move by the Heat? Well, Beasley started his NBA career in Miami. Beasley was the No.2 pick behind Derrick Rose in the 2008 draft. He was a standout player for the Kansas State Wildcats, earning Big 12 player of the year honors and leading his team...
The Miami Heat have signed Michael Beasley, the club announced Wednesday.
The team did not disclose terms of the contract, but according to multiple reports it's a non-guaranteed deal.
Beasley, who was originally drafted by the Heat with the No. 2 pick in the 2008 draft, is currently under investigation in Scottsdale, Ariz., for a sexual assault incident at his home.
Ray Allen keeps getting asked about “the shot.” He’s not complaining, exactly. He thinks it was just as cool as a lot of Heat fans did.
In case you blocked it from your memory, the shot in question came with 5.2 seconds to go in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. The Heat were on the verge of being eliminated by the Spurs before a scrum for an offensive rebound ended with the ball in...
Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade is a busy man. Last weekend in Chicago, Wade returned to his hometown to kick off his annual Wade’s World Weekend in support of his foundation, “Wade’s World Foundation.” The weekend included a benefit dinner at Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse which was attended by Juwan Howard, Jeffery Jordan and others.
On Friday, September 6th, the Wade’s World...
Yakhouba Diawara’s contract with BCM Gravelines of Eurocup will be a one-year deal without an NBA out clause, a source told RealGM.
RealGM first reported on Monday that Diawara was expecting to sign with a club in the Eurocup this week. Diawara’s reasoning to join BCM Gravelines without an NBA opt out is to focus on competing for the league’s championship.
After his third season...
As we near “LeBronmageddon” as Miami Heat star LeBron James is set to become a free agent in 2014, he decided to discuss his current state of mind to ESPN’s Chris Broussard.
Below are LeBron’s comments where he states that he isn’t sure what his plan is:
“I have absolutely no idea,” James recently told ESPN.com. “I would love to spend the rest of my career in Miami...
For all anyone knows, we could be quickly approaching the Miami Heat’s last season atop the NBA food chain. That’s because Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James can all opt out of their contracts next summer. If, by chance, it is the last run for the currently-constructed Heat, here’s what what we’re always going […]The post The Miami Heat: The World Champion Foster...
When did Miami Heat’s legacy start? Did it start when LeBron James ,Chris Bosh, and Ray Allen joined the team, or did it start when Dwyane Wade led the Heat to their first NBA title? Opinions vary, but in my opinion, I think Dwyane Wade along side Shaquille O’Neal, started the foundation for Miami’s legacy. The year of 2006 was the first NBA finals appearance by the Heat where...
Remember Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals, when a majority of Heat fans left the arena with Miami down five and under 30 seconds remaining just to find out that Ray Allen hit a miraculous three-pointer to send the game into overtime en route to a 103-100 victory? Well, it turns out this 2005 Toyota commercial featuring Phil Jackson sort of predicted the whole thing.
