Adidas accidentally crowns Warriors NBA champions before Game 5
With their 3-1 series lead over the Cavaliers, many Golden State fans have already crowned the Warriors back-to-back champions.
Apparently, so has Adidas.
The sports gear company, which happens to be the official apparel sponsor of the NBA, prematurely rolled out an ad promoting Warriors’ championship gear on their mobile site Monday morning.
Adidas’ mobile home page featured an image of the Larry O’Brien trophy, along with the text "Golden State Warriors 2016 NBA Champions," in addition to links to "shop championship tee" and "shop championship hat."
So Adidas is pretty confident that the Warriors are gonna win tonight… pic.twitter.com/vUeG4u0DkY

While no team in NBA Finals history has come back from a 3-1 deficit (0-32), if we’ve learned anything this NBA postseason, it’s that anything can happen, especially when you throw a highly motivated LeBron James into the mix.
Just when you thought the Warriors gave James and the Cavaliers plenty of bulletin-board material during Sunday’s media session, it looks like Nike’s biggest spokesperson might have a little extra motivation.
