Can a pair of LeBron shoes help San Antonio win the title?

Some pictures have just surfaced on the internet of a pair of "Nike LeBron X Low" basketball shoes.  What's interesting is the inscription on the insole of each shoe:

The shoes claim this year's Finals are already over, and the Heat/LeBron are champions.  A few major hoops blogs have already shared this story.  Yahoo Ball Don't Lie, CBS Sports Eye on Basketball, and Celtics Life who I write for.  I'm hoping by the time 6 pm eastern rolls around Sportscenter may decide it's worth mentioning; and really hoping these pictures end up in the Spurs locker room before tip off tonight.  Maybe it'll be just that extra bit of motivation they need.

Despite being down 3-2, I still think Miami wins this series.  The Heat have played extremely well with their backs against the wall this postseason.  In 6 games following a loss, they've won every time by an average of 20.67 points, and by double digits on each occasion.   But, Miami has also alternated wins and losses for 12 consecutive games now (dating back to the start of the Indiana series), and if that keeps going the Spurs will win in 7.

If somehow that happens, I'm going to have to credit Mars Blackmon for saying "It's gotta be the shoes!"
