As Black History Month rolls on, The Throwback revisits an epic mishap by the Los Angeles Clippers, shortly before they became one of the NBA’s best teams.

If you’ve ever wished black history could be celebrated every month, the L.A. Clippers are feeling you – sorta.
No, that picture (via Ball Don’t Lie) is not a fake. It’s a real advert the Clips paid for and ran in the Los Angeles Times this past Sunday, promoting their Black History Month “celebration” … on March 2.
It’s tough to say what’s worse: that the Times would run this ad, or the fact that the typo isn’t even the worst thing about it.
