Miami Herald ad mistake: Heat win NBA title

June 13, 2011
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

MIAMI (AP) - The Mavericks' win over the Heat was a huge upset for fans in Miami, especially after an ad in the local paper mistakenly congratulates the Heat on the win.

A full-page ad that ran in Monday's Miami Herald reads "Congratulations Miami" next to photos of Heat championship T-shirts and hats from Macy's. One T-shirt reads "Heat 2011 NBA Finals Champions" and the ad shows the Heat's logo on the front of a hat with the words "NBA Champions."

The ad ran under a story about the Heat's loss.

The newspaper issued a correction and apologized for any inconvenience. A Macy's spokeswoman called it "an unfortunate error" and apologized to Heat fans.

The Mavericks beat the Heat 105-95 in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Sunday in Miami.
