This phrase will never get old as long as I'm alive. But the Thomas rumors made me wince last night. Glad it was debunked/walked back.Could be worse. Sarver could still be the owner.
ThisHe's a new owner and a basketball fan. I'm sure he wants to get more information about the luxury tax first hand before he comments on it one way or the other. He bought the Suns as a tax paying team so I wouldn't be concerned unless he said he plans to avoid it. It's more about spending wisely than spending in general. Paying the tax makes sense if you have players that warrant it as well as a contending team. Where the tax hurts is when you struggle to even make the playoffs and are overpaying players regularly. The Knicks regularly pay the tax and I wouldn't trade spots with them in any way.
When I have think about the senior executives I have met and interacted with in the Mortgage and Insurance industry....... this is the exact speaking style and mannerisms I have encountered.xc_hide_links_from_guests_guests_error_hide_media
Really find it odd he was there, he hasn't been around the team hardly at all for many years, now he shows up multiple times this season. Has he moved back to the valley?
He was taking selfies with the new Ishbia after the presser.They did the reunion of the Western Conference Champs like a week ago. He very well could have stuck around. Not that odd, IMO. He's always come back for big events and if he knew this was happening soon when he was in the valley already why not stick around. He's not the mayor anymore so he has more free time. 50+ year olds in Phoenix in winter months should never bring questions.
I'm loving the new owner, love the aggressiveness, love the public disregard for money, now if he can just somehow get rid of sweet james...
lol i was talking about sweet james, the shady ass douchebag lawyer who sponsors the team and had one of the most sexist commercials I've ever seenI wonder if James Jones is really a bad GM or if Sarver kept him from doing his job. Wouldn't be the first GM Sarver made a sock puppet out of. He's made some savvy moves when's he made them so I can't say he's been taken advantage of. I guess he's bought himself some time though because if KD pans out, he's not going anywhere. Everyone knows Ishbia was the one who pushed that through so JJ doesn't really get credit for it but he will likely be the fall guy if it doesn't work.

Nah it's a commercial where he just shows a bunch of attractive women working at his firm. No guys, no clients, just him, his hair plugs and the sexy ladies lolLol I just assumed JJ had a nickname I wasn't up to date on. Haven't seen that commercial, I don't think. Can't be the Danny Trejo commercial, can it?
