SAN ANTONIO, Jan. 16 (UPI) -- The San Antonio Spurs are being sued by a former Miami Heat season-ticket holder for sending four players home before their Nov. 29 game at Miami.

In his suit, Miami-based attorney Larry McGuinness accuses Spurs coach Gregg Popovich of inflicting "economic damages" on fans who paid premium prices to attend the game, the San Antonio Express News reported Wednesday.

NBA teams vary game ticket prices with those for higher-profile opponents costing more.

McGuinness said he would have stayed home and watched the game on television if he had known the Spurs sent Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Danny Green back to San Antonio.

"It was like going to a restaurant and ordering the most expensive item on the menu -- lobster -- and you get a horrible chicken fried steak," said McGuinness.

The class-action lawsuit asks the Spurs for the differential between premium and lower-tier tickets.

McGuinness said if he wins, he'll donate his portion to Superstorm Sandy relief.
