Spurs fan files lawsuit against Warriors and Zaza Pachulia for Kawhi Leonard injury
Can a fan really keep the Warriors out of San Antonio?
A Spurs fan has filed a lawsuit against the Warriors and Zaza Pachulia because of the injury Kawhi Leonard received in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals. The lawsuit also asks for a restraining order against the Warriors organization and Pacuhlia demanding they not be allowed in San Antonio.
"The suit claims the injury to Kawhi Leonard has had an impact on the fans, community, season-ticket holders and those whose businesses promote the Silver and Black.
"All we are asking from the court is that this type of behavior, that can and does cause serious injury to our team and those that love it, not be allowed in San Antonio," Alfonso Kennard, Jr., lead attorney, said.
Fans are now suing NBA teams, because someone out there said that the playoffs weren't exciting enough so let's add a ridiculous lawsuit into the mix. Surely that will add some spice to an otherwise dull playoffs. Hopefully this fan realizes that if the lawsuit is actually successful the Spurs would be forced to play all of their games against the Warriors on the road, giving the hometown favorites a major disadvantage.
Even if there was reason to take this lawsuit seriously, there is no way any case involving the Warriors or Pachulia will reach a conclusion before the end of the conference finals. The Warriors should be in San Antonio soon, well before a restraining order can actually be implemented.
