Miami Lawyer Sues Spurs For Resting Stars Vs Heat

The San Antonio Spurs paid a hefty fine back in November when coach Greg Popovich decided to rest his starters and send them home after a long stretch, rather than have them face the Heat.

The team was fined $250,000, now according to ESPN, a Miami attorney named Larry McGuinness wants them pay more, and now he’s bringing a class action suit against the franchise.

 ”Spurs coach Gregg Popovich “intentionally and surreptitiously” sent their best players home without the knowledge of the league, the team and the fans attending the Nov. 29 game against the Miami Heat. Myself as well as other fans, “suffered economic damages” as a result of paying a premium price for a ticket that shouldn’t cost more.

“It was like going to Morton’s Steakhouse and paying $63 for porterhouse and they bring out cube steak,” said McGuinness, who said he bought his ticket on the resale market. “That’s exactly what happened here.”

Not sure what to make of this, but if this guy can win, than everybody will start suing if their favorite player doesn’t suit up.

    Those fans that are suing must have had a big bet in Vegas betting that the Spurs were going to beat the Heat by 30points and were disappointed that they lost by 5 points instead,with out their starters.

    Whats the difference between a lawyer and a catfish? One is a scum sucking bottom dweller, the other is a fish. WHat a jerk, I hope he wastes all his time and money and the judge throws it out of court.

    And I should sue the Cowboys and Jerry Jones because Dallas has a bad team? How about going to a Broadway show, and the star becomes ill and the understudy goes on? Basis for a law suit? Just a goofy lawyer with too much time on his hands.

    this guy is an idiot. first of all he bought it second hand sue the person you way over paid, second read the damn thing says no refund because that can happen at any time. third you serious your law practice must suck if you have time for this. so i dont think the spurs care that you are suing i think they are laughing at you especially since they almost won that game. lol idiot
