The Oklahoma City Thunder have punched their ticket to the NBA Finals. They're still waiting to find out who their opponents will be, but it's clear that the NBA Store has a distinct preference. They've already thought up a clever rhyme and everything!
According to Larry Brown Sports, the NBA Store was selling this shirt for a short time on Friday night, which included an "NBA Finals" logo at the bottom:
Yes, yes. That's a very clever rhyme, NBA Store. Unfortunately, the Miami Heat haven't actually, you know, advanced to the Finals as of yet. Perhaps they will! In the event that the Boston Celtics prevail, however, let's hope the NBA Store has an equally clever shirt prepared.
Actually, who am I kidding? It's a near certainty that Adidas thought up a slogan for pretty much any eventuality. Here are some educated guesses for some other super-clever shirts that we might someday be treated to:
- Nix The Sixers!
- Spurn the Spurs!
-Take'r to the Lakers!
- Beat The Other Team By A (Bos)Ton!
- We've Got a Plan'ta Beat Atlanta!
- We're A (Char)Lot(te) Better Than Your Team!
- Cause The Thunder To Make Costly Blunders!
