Just when you thought the San Antonio Spurs “benching players saga” was over, Larry McGuinness is suing the Spurs organization for violating the state’s deceptive and fair trade practices law. This can go under the file of crazy Americans who don’t get their way and proceed to sue.
As an NBA fan I can understand the frustration of forfeiting all of that money to watch a team play without their four best players however, unlike McGuinness, I have enough sense to chalk it up to an unlucky draw and move on.
Apparently the Miami Heat fan and Miami-Dade county native “suffered economic damages” because Spurs coach Gregg Popovich ”intentionally and surreptitiously” sent Tony Parker, Manu Ginobli, Tim Duncan and Gerald Green back to San Antonio prior to the November 29th game.
In simpler terms, McGuinness is upset that he didn’t get what he had paid for–welcome to the United States of America Larry. Just because Popovich decided to send these guys home doesn’t mean you were taken advantage of.
I can not count how many times I have gone out to see a blockbuster movie that looked incredible in all the trailers and had star-studded cast that absolutely tanked. Yes, and believe it or not I did not sue any major film company for my “economic damage.” This lawsuit is foolish and shows us just how spoiled some of citizenry is.
Getting back to the actual matchup, the completely undermanned Spurs only lost the contest 105-100 as McGuinness did all of this complaining over a thriller. You would think he’d be ecstatic at such a close and exciting game. Any NBA fan would be delighted to see two teams go back in fourth up until the last buzzer sounds in fact, I’m sure Washington Wizards fans would pay top dollar to see their team play in such a game.
McGuinnesshas should be embarrassed of himself for causing a commotion over such a minor deal. For those who disagree with me and believe the Spurs deserve such a lawsuit please leave a comment below.
