When a celebrity posts a pic or says something regrettable, they just delete the update and say the account was hacked. Nobody believes them but we accept it and then we just search twitter or go to a MTO or TMZ site to see the deleted pic that hundreds of people have already downloaded or screen captured. Unfortunately, nobody is going to accept or believe an organization, so if they post an oops, then they will just have to admit they screwed up.
That organization yesterday was the Chicago Bulls who accidentally did not hit the private option after they uploaded a video congratulating Joakim Noah on making the 2014 All-Star team. Once they realized it was live and public, they quickly hid the video but not before Beyond The Buzzer downloaded a copy and uploaded it to their YouTube channel.
Hopefully the Bulls didn’t delete the video because when the reserves are announced on Thursday I’m hoping the only other player in the league averaging at least 10 points 10 rebounds and 4 assists will be announced. This seasons averages of 11.7, 11.4, 4.1, 1.2, 1.3 is very close to his last season averages of 11.9, 11.1, 4.0, 1.2, 2.1 and those apples were good enough to get him a spot on the All-Star team last year.
If he’s not named to the game then that’s a shame but the video oops isn’t really that big of a deal.
What’s embarrassing is when NBATV prematurely showed a commercial to buy 2013 NBA Champion Spurs Clothing and a DVD showing their win against the Miami Heat…that didn’t happen.
