The San Antonio Spurs handed an epic beat down to the Miami Heat last night in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.  But that hasn’t been the only talk around South Texas. Instead, critics lashed out at the Spurs organization for inviting an Sebastian De La Cruz, an 11-year-old Mexican-American, to sing the national anthem before the game. 

He can sing, right? Right. But some NBA fans were outraged that the Spurs would have a Latino boy sing the national anthem.

Latino Rebels captured some of the backlash on Twitter:
