Remember when the San Antonio Spurs rested most of their starters against the Miami Heat back on November 29th?
Well, the league took a sizable sum ($250,000 to be exact) from the Spurs and it appears that a local Miami lawyer is trying to do the same.
The lawyer’s name is Larry McGuinness and he has filed a class-action suit against the Spurs for resting their starters knowingly and causing economic damage to the tickets he bought:
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.”
Yep, that happened…*shakes head*
