GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. -- The San Antonio Spurs will be featured on a commemorative Wheaties box after winning the NBA Championship on Thursday.

The special edition package will feature Spurs stars Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili on the front and a photo of the whole team on the back. The company said Friday the box would be available nationally in two to three weeks.

The Spurs were also featured on a box of Wheaties, produced by Golden Valley, Minn.-based General Mills, when they won the league championship in 2003.

The Spurs beat the Detroit Pistons 81-74 Thursday night to win the best-of-seven series. It was the Spurs' third title since 1999.
