Some people take sports very seriously. But perhaps no one takes it more seriously than San Antonio Spurs fan Juan Vasquez.
Vasquez was so incensed that Golden State Warriors’ center Zaza Pachulia injured the Spurs’ Kawhi Leonard in game 1 of the teams’ Western Conference Finals matchup that he’s filed a lawsuit seeking $73,000, and for the court to put a stop to Pachulia’s defensive closeout techniques.
If the court even has the ability to govern basketball defensive formations, that is.
According to Vasquez’s attorney,
“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 Spurs’ were swept in the series 4-0. No idea yet if this ridiculous lawsuit will be swept out of court, but it’s far from a slam dunk.
