I guess any publicity is good publicity.....but this is crazy.

The San Antonio Spurs are being sued by a lawyer who is alleging the team violated the state's deceptive and fair trade practices law.
On Monday, Larry McGuinness filed a class-action suit in Miami-Dade County, stating 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. McGuinness contends that he, as well as other fans, "suffered economic damages" as a result of paying a premium price for a ticket that shouldn't cost more.

I do feel like if you pay good money to see a team play, you should get to see the A-team. Imagine if its the 90's and you make a trip to Chicago to see MJ play and the coach decides to rest him. A lawsuit isn't necessary though

The irony is that the Spurs' B team almost won against the Heat. They had to have a buzzer beater to win. How is that not a good game to watch?

Such a frivolous lawsuit.

I hope this lawyer dies.

Stupid lawsuits like this are why it is so hard for actual justice on real cases to be administered. Judges have to wade through months and months of this BS to get to a legitimate case.

Do you know what kind of precedent that would set?    A patron suing a restaurant because on a nite they patronized the restaurant anticipating a certain chef but getting a different one....you could apply this in a thousand ridiculous ways
