Sorry Coach, but if tickets for floor seats are gonna continue to cost upwards of $1k people are gonna do whatever they want. The NBA will certainly not limit the privileges of being a floor seat ticket holder.
Calling Thursday’s sideline incident at Madison Square Garden that led to forward Stephen Jackson’s right ankle sprain “a Mayoral mishap,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich called on the NBA to police activity along the league’s sidelines and baselines.
“It’s maddening,” Popovich said of the incident in which Jackson lost his balance after running into a waitress during the first quarter of the Spurs-Knicks game. The waitress appeared to be taking an order from New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg.
“It’s an accident waiting to happen…It’s obvious people shouldn’t be ordering beers or Cokes or hot dogs when the game is going on.”
