Radio Bit Angers San Antonio Spurs
April 30, 2007 at 5:46 AM (PT)
A bit by CLEAR CHANNEL Sports KTKR-A (760 THE TICKET)/SAN ANTONIO afternoon hosts JEFF VEXLER and GEORGE PASACRITA has prompted the SAN ANTONIO SPURS to cancel coach GREGG POPOVICH's weekly show on the station for the remainder of the playoffs.
The team was offended by a phone interview with a fake ALLEN IVERSON in which an impersonator of the DENVER NUGGETS star claimed to have slipped the SPURS something from his and CARMELO ANTHONY's "special stash" to slow them down; the bit also included "IVERSON" firing a gun. While initial reports in the SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS indicated that the hosts' game credentials had also been revoked, the team later said that it will not revoke the credentials.
