"Suit claims Spurs violated state law"

Bitter much?
The San Antonio Spurs are being sued by a lawyer [Of course.  ----ed.] 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.


"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."

As much as I like the thought of our beloved Spurs players being compared to high-quality steak, I'm more entertained by the thought of the Heat team being nothing more than hamburger to a Florida fan.

Eat that, LeBron!

The Spurs almost won the game. This lawsuit is ridiculous and the NBA needs to step in.

The same NBA that fined the Spurs for sending the stars home? Somehow, I don't think they'd be on our side.

No, they wouldn't be on our side. the NBA seems to be quite comfortable with all things anti-Spurs.
