Where were you on the day of November 29th, 2012? Does that day ring a bell? That was the day the San Antonio Spurs traveled to Miami to take on the Heat in a game that would showcase two of the top teams in the league. But, as we all know, Gregg Popovich sat down players that Miami fans, including, Miami attorney Larry McGuinness did not like and felt the fans were cheated and San Antonio should be punished.
He took out a lawsuit against the team.
Today the Miami Herald revealed that the lawsuit in which McGuinness opened up was voluntarily dismissed. What he claimed in this lawsuit is that they [San Antonio Spurs Organization] violated Florida’s Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act by sitting their star players against Miami.
There has been no other information on why he [McGuinness] dismissed the lawsuit.
