Nike ad scorches San Antonio Spurs haters

The San Antonio Spurs are once again champions of the NBA, and if you don’t like it, that’s too bad. That’s the message behind Nike’s latest ad that congratulates the Spurs on their fifth NBA Finals trophy since 1999, as seen below.

If anything, this latest ad campaign underlines the bad blood lingering between the two fan bases, which could hardly be more different.

San Antonio has always had that small market, blue-collar feel and Miami is, well, Miami.

It’s been a great two years of competition between these two but today is San Antonio’s day and it will be celebrated as such, no matter what the opposition says.

The accusations of being a dull squad fell on deaf ears this year as the Spurs put on a display that is almost unparalleled in NBA Finals history.

The almost robotic manner in which the Spurs offense dismantled Miami’s defense for three straight games was probably the most lopsided the Finals have been since the Spurs demolished a Cleveland Cavaliers squad lead by a young Lebron James. It’s hard to hate a team that made basketball that much fun to watch for a week straight.

Love or hate them, the Spurs are once again the top dog in basketball.
