Apparently San Antonio Spurs head coach, Greg Popovich, wasn’t the only one upset over Zaza Pachulia’s allegedly dirty and intentional closeout that injured Kawhi Leonard’s ankle in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals. An angry Spurs fan is now suing Pachulia and the Golden State Warriors over Leonard’s injury. The civil suit, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, says the injury “devastated 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.” It also diminished “the value of the tickets purchased by plaintiff subsequent to their purchase.”
Let’s see what Twitter was chirping about on this one.

What is this world coming to? This has to be some joke, right? Seriously? How disgruntled can you be as a Spurs fan? Since 1999 your team has won 13 Division titles, 6 Conference titles, and 5 NBA championships. How bad can it be? This lawsuit is just more proof that people have taken this suing thing way too far. Props to the judge who laughed at this clown and threw this case out before it could even see the light of day.
