I’ve heard the Suns are valued around $2B. I’m curious how much it would take to get Sarver’s 35% share.
700 million

Hopefully he fucks off to his soccer club in Mallorca. I never want to hear his name again once this is finished.

I really like the part where he basically blames cancel culture for not getting a second chance lol. What a turd.
Actions have consequences.

What a piece of shit.

How many chances did he have to change his behavior in 18 years? How many did he take?

And honestly, how many chances should you get if you take your dick out at work (unless you are taking a piss in a restroom). Doesn't matter if you think it is a joke or you are banging a co-worker--you should be fired.

I just read this will be Chris Paul's 4th ownership change while playing for the team... That is crazy.

I can’t believe it and I’m praying that this isn’t a “be careful what you wish for” scenario. What if he sells it to someone worse? What if, out of spite, he sells to an ownership group in Seattle and they move? I can’t lie and say I’m not a little scared.
I agree. I don't think the team is likely to move, though. I also worry that there is always the chance that any new owner would also be crappy in some unforeseen way. For example, what if the new owner decides to fire the front office staff and replace them with his own people? I just hope for a clean transition and low drama.

A few stray thoughts:

- let’s change the site name to bax-ter.net or something. Baxter Holmes should be the inaugural member of our ring of honor.

- as far as the next owner, I’m not concerned. When the devil you know is the actual devil, things can only get better.

- Gambo touched on this in a tweet, but I’d love clarification on if the entire ownership group is selling or it’s just Sarver’s majority share. And do the minority owners have a ROFR? It would be great if Sarver, Garvin and Rowley would all GTFO.

- I’m excited to have a G-league team again and we’ll soon get an answer on if James Jones truly doesn’t care about drafting and developing young talent or if he was just covering for Sarver’s cheapness.

- Sarver’s statement is a joke for all the reasons said already. One thing I also had issue with is how it starts: “Words I deeply regret…” How about your actions, buddy? He also paints himself as some sort of messiah to the greater Phoenix area. Fuck right off, Sarver. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

OMG, Chris Paul is so toxic, he even makes owners quit. Haha!

The first business for the new owner needs to be to clean house on the business side. Get Rowley out of there. Hopefully they keep the basketball side intact. Jones/Monty is about as good as we’ve had in my lifetime.

I saw this coming. This is no surprise. He had to sell the team and move on.
