The Australian pair of Patty Mills and Aron Baynes are certainly enjoying their first NBA championship as part of the San Antontio Spurs organisation and have even taken to video-bombing to show off the Larry O'Brien trophy.

Julian De Stoop is a correspondent who works for Fox Sports News and he was simply trying to do his job reporting in Melbourne recently, when he was interrupted by two over-excited basketball players parading their championship.

De Stoop was positioned outside of the headquarters of AFL club Collingwood and was shooting live when suddenly NBA players broke on to the scene and began acting like crazed fans much to the annoyance of the reporter.

De Stoop irritated by the interruption had no time to deal with the popular basketball stars and began to firmly exclaim: ""Get off, boys, Get off."

With that Mills and Baynes had bolted the scene with the center still clutching the gold obelisk that is the Larry O'Brien trophy, who would have thought that the pair would be running around Melbourne carrying the NBA's most prized possession.

You can check out the video of the amusing attempted news report that saw its stride broken by two enthused NBA players,

Have a look here:

De Stoop didn't realise at the time that he had been videobombed by two of the countries top basketball players and even gave Mills a little stiff arm to leave the camera at the time.

After the filming was cut, the reporter was told by his team that he had given Patty Mills of all people a little shove out of the shot.

De Stoop later said: "I'm highly embarrassed about that, I thought it was just a couple of Collingwood nuffies doing their thing."

Mills actually had is arm in a sling at the time of filming after recovering from surgery, the reporter has explained that he plans to make amends with the basketball pair.
