The NBA has another Donald Sterling on their hands.
In an ESPN tell-all article, it reports that current Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver has made racist, lewd and inappropriate comments in meetings with the team over the years.
He used the n-word in meetings with then-Suns head coach Earl Watson, especially when referring to Golden State Warriors All Star Draymond Green.
Chose to hire Lindsey Hunter over Dan Majerle as the head coach because the “n******” need a “n******.”
Sarver also apparently made very insensitive comments in Steve Nash’s recruitment meeting and chose to sign in spite of him.
Sarver is claimed to said that he doesn’t like diversity in the work place and said women don’t hold any value in life.
The article goes more into further detail of the toxic and gross environment that Sarver has created in Phoenix.
If the allegations are true, then NBA commissioner Adam Silver needs to act like he did in 2014 when he banned Donald Sterling for life and forced him to sell the Los Angeles Clippers.
Sarver has, of course, denied all the allegations, but when there is smoke, there is fire, and this sounds like a case of an owner who has abused his power and needs to be removed as soon as possible.
