Robert Sarver

Today, the NBA is better than it was yesterday. I don't know what that is.

Robert said in his statement that he has begun the process of selling the Suns and Mercury. A lengthy investigation was recently released and it laid out the many ways in which Sarver oversaw a toxic and offensive workplace.

The result of the investigation was a one-year suspension and $10 million fine, a punishment that was much-maligned all across sports media. Adam Silver said there is a difference between being employed by the NBA and owning a franchise. An NBA PR representative tried to walk back comments made about Silver.

Since the release of the report and the press conference, the correct decision has been made. It wasn't a good situation for sarver to walk back into the Suns and Mercury offices. While announcing that NBA fans will never have to worry about him again, he found a way to be offensive, even though he did what was best for everyone.

This is the beginning of his release.

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.

People were able to come together with the help of sarver. He built an organization that brought together hundreds of people for an investigation that showed him pulling his dick out in front of employees.

It's bad that he can't win in this situation. Since he purchased the Suns, franchise valuations have gone up. He paid a record amount. Donald Strling was forced out of the NBA after he was caught on tape telling his mistress that being around Black people at games made him look bad.

If the owner wants to take no ownership of his actions and words, he should replace the word "I'm Back" with "I'm Selling"

He hoped that the year suspension would give him the chance to make up for what he had done.

What is your faith? Do you think that people should do what you want them to do, or do you believe in God and the Scientologists?

There needs to be an admission of fault to make up for it. This is some of what he had to say in a statement before the report was published.

“While I can’t begin to know how to respond to some of the vague suggestions made by mostly anonymous voices, I can certainly tell you that some of the claims I find completely repugnant to my nature and to the character of the Suns/Mercury workplace and I can tell you they never, ever happened.”

“I categorically deny any and all suggestions that I used disparaging language related to race or gender. I would like to think that my actions and public record regarding race, gender, or discrimination of any kind, over a lifetime in business and community service, will adequately answer any questions anyone might raise about my commitment to equality and fairness.”

There isn't anything to make up for. He denied every detail in the report except for the one about pantsing an employee at the Ice Bucket Challenge. Most of what he was accused of was denied by him. He yelled at a woman and only female employees were invited to lunch. It was to foster networking between employees and the bank in which he was CEO. The NBA investigators didn't think that was true.

He was full of hot air after raising all hell, fire, and brimstone to defend himself. The Suns and Mercury were owned by him. He spoke whatever he wanted to the employees for 18 years. It can be argued that he took pleasure in making people miserable, because he showed little to no regard for human dignity.

It's good that he's selling his teams. It is what needs to happen, but the audacity of Robert Sarver to believe that the public is to blame shows that society's cultural problem isn't as bad as they think. Certain people can make a $2 billion profit if they believe in something.
