Bob Iger Group, here we come.
Could CP3 & LeBron be a part of this group?

Not while they're playing.

Pretty sure Jordan owned a small part when he was player, no?

Also, Iger would need a lot of other people involved since he isn't even a billionaire.

That's what I thought too, but like everything else in this league, they may make a change in the rules and/or exception for LeBron.

I’d be all for a LBJ/CP3/Bob Iger group.

Saw Larry Ellison, Jeff Bezos, and Laurene Jobs mentioned as well.

No. He had to divest his share when he unretired.

CP3 would be the right mind for an owner. He is so invested in future players in the NBA. I could see that mindset growing from the top down in terms of professionalism into a successful franchise. But that’s all just fantasy. Just happy we can all move on.

Same with Magic Johnson when he returned to play for the Lakers.

Jeff Bezos can just throw money at whatever he wants probably forever, that'd be fun.

God no to Bezos. I know it is a really high bar to find someone with billions that isn't an awful person, but lets not aim so low.

- 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?
Thank you. That is the first thing I noticed. He also says "...outweighed by things I have said in the past." Last week, he apologized for his actions and he even admitted the pantsing incident last fall.

Strange that he would now make it sound like it was "just words."

Baxter Holmes should have a statue in front of the arena. This man is a hero.

Yeah, regardless of exactly how awful one thinks Sarver's various words and deeds were, his various statements and apologies are really lacking. He doesn't really take ownership and responsibility, he doesn't unconditionally apologize, he sounds defensive and blames how others received his behavior more than the behavior itself. He also implies that all of this was long, long ago, when actually some of the incidents were as recent as 1-2 years ago.

I talked previously about giving people opportunities to learn and show growth after they make mistakes or hurt others. But Sarver does not seem to be doing that; he's denying culpability and blaming the situation on others being oversensitive or overreacting. It doesn't sound like he has internalized a lesson from the mess he's in. Maybe someday he'll get there, but for now, he isn't even close. I guess I shouldn't have expected better from him, but it sucks to see that.

Bottom line is, I'll be happy to see him go, for a wide variety of reasons. It's time for #SarverOUT to finally become a reality. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Is Sarver still banned from attending Suns and Mercury games for a year even if he is no longer the owner?
