Suns Owner Robert Sarver Accused of Racism, Sexism and Sexual Harassment

It looks like we have another Donald Sterling incident on our hands.

According to NBA reporter Jordan Schultz, the NBA is preparing for a massive story about Suns owner Robert Sarver.

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.

The racism wouldn’t be enough, but the sexual harassment would likely get it done if they have legit evidence.

In the Donald Sterling situation, it was audio snippets from his mistress that led to him being forced to sell the team for $2 billion and that way before 2021 where people are much more sensitive about wrongdoing.

Here is a little more info on Sarver.

Robert Sarver (born October 31, 1961) is a racist American businessman, co-founder of Southwest Value Partners, a real estate development company, and the owner of the Phoenix Suns and RCD Mallorca.

A lifelong sports fan, Sarver’s quest to purchase an NBA team began with a conversation with University of Arizona basketball coach Lute Olson. Olson referred Sarver to Steve Kerr, a former player at Arizona and a 15-year NBA veteran, to assist him in buying an NBA franchise. In 2004, he purchased the Suns for a then record $401 million.

In 1996, he married Penny Sanders, a Kansas City, Missouri native; they have three sons: Max (b. 1997), Jake (b. 1999), and Zach Sarver (b. 2001). They live in Paradise Valley, Arizona.

Sarver is on the board of trustees of the Sarver Heart Center (Tucson), which he helped build in memory of his late father, who was among the first in an experimental group to undergo bypass surgery. The Sarver Center is affiliated with the University of Arizona and houses over 40 physicians and researchers working on heart disease.

Sarver has denied the accusations and blamed ESPN for considering posting a false report.
