About two weeks ago, rumours started coming out online regarding Suns owner Robert Sarver.
🚨 Breaking: The NBA is preparing for a massive story accusing #Suns owner Robert Sarver of racism, sexism and sexual harassment in a series of incidents, sources say. With enough evidence to support such claims, there’s a real chance the league would forcibly remove Sarver.

Today, ESPN has released an article which contains cases of Sarver’s alleged actions involving racism and misogyny throughout his 17-year tenure as owner of the Phoenix Suns.
Reportedly, Robert Sarver has the idea to have local strippers impreganated by NBA players, so they would feel obliged to stay. Bryan Toporek’s tweet included a sample of the ESPN article, describing just that:

Teams and franchises definitively try to stay creative in their recruitment process, but to attempt to get “strippers impregnated” is definitively out of line…
This article by ESPN is an example of how this controversy regarding Sarver is blowing up, which makes us wonder; how will the NBA act with this kind of controversial information?
The Phoenix Suns are in a good position in terms of talent, coming out of an NBA finals appearance. But, they seem to have a new wave of problems to deal with, such as Deandre Ayton’s contract and Robert Sarver himself. Above all, Suns fans hope that the team can continue to bring glory to their city amid all the controversy and negativity surrounding the team.
