Miami Herald ad mistake: Heat win NBA title
Submitted By AP Wire Service
MIAMI (AP), Jun 13 - 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.
