Robert Sarver is certainly the biggest story in the NBA due to recent developments that surfaced concerning his actions as the owner of the Phoenix Suns. Sarver is NBA’s top target right now, and it’s clear that he deserves the criticism he’s getting. From sending porn to staff members to repeatedly using the N-word, he did it all.
According to TMZ Sports, Sarver will give up both the Phoenix Suns and the Phoenix Mercury after the NBA discovered that he did use the n-word multiple times during his tenure as an owner in the leagues.
Robert Sarver revealed in a lengthy statement that he is “beginning the process of seeking buyers for the Suns and the Mercury” following the NBA’s findings.
“Words that I deeply regret now overshadow nearly two decades of building organizations that brought people together — and strengthened the Phoenix area — through the unifying power of professional men’s and women’s basketball,” Sarver said, before adding, “but in our current unforgiving climate, it has become painfully clear that that is no longer possible — that whatever good I have done, or could still do, is outweighed by things I have said in the past.”
Commissioner Adam Silver fined Sarver $10 million and suspended him one year over it all, but LeBron James felt it was not enough. LeBron James also tweeted, ”I’m so proud to be a part of a league committed to progress!” We’ll have to see who will end up becoming the Phoenix Suns’ new owner.
