Looks like Spurs fans are still salty about the Kahwi Leonard injury from game 1 of the Western Conference NBA Finals. A Spurs fan seriously just sued Zaza Pachulia for his part in Kahwi's injury for up to $73,000!
According to the San Antonio Express-News, Spurs fan Juan Vazquez filed a lawsuit on Tuesday against Pachulia and the Golden State Warriors.
He’s seeking damages of no more than $73,000, but he mainly wants the court to stop Pachulia’s closeouts … if that’s even possible.
Vazquez’s attorney said via The Express-News:
“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,” said Alfonso Kennard, Jr., lead attorney for the plaintiffs.
The NBA already decided that Pachulia, who denied intent, would not face discipline for the closeout. But suing a player is seriously taking being a disgruntled fan to the next level.
This is a real thing from a real lawsuit.
The Golden State Warriors and Zaza Pachulia on May 14, 2017, subsequent to the purchase of tickets by Plaintiff, without excuse or justification, intentionally and maliciously invaded the landing zone of an opposing athlete, Kawhi Leonard, thereby devastating:– the quality of the Spurs’ chances of being competitive and having additional games in their home arena, both in the Western Conference Finals and also potentially in the NBA Finals– the value of the tickets purchased by Plaintiff subsequent to their purchase
You can read the whole lawsuit here. It’s a good one.
Talk about salty!
