Oh man… Peter Thiel is a total piece of garbage. I’d hate that.
I don’t know how quick the league will be to accept someone that might worse than sarver. All lights will be focused on the new owner.Im still convinced that Sarver would prefer to sell to a piece of garbage. I heard a while ago (years) that Sarver realized how much he was hated, and believed the only way he could salvage his reputation as the Suns owner was to win a title (as long as it didn’t cost him a bunch financially). Now that the title will never happen I believe he will aim to sell to an owner that has has a chance to be more (or at least equally) hated as he was.
Thiel reportedly donated over 20 million to Blake Masters election fund.

I’ll be honest… Thiel is probably gonna be the last straw for my fandom. All billionaires are likely pieces trash, but sone are MUCH worse than others. This guy’s vision of the world he’s trying to create with his billions is a nightmare for too many people.But I don’t see the league rejecting someone like Thiel. He wouldn’t be the first (or last) far right Republican associated with the NBA who donates millions to further right republicans. Sarver might not be able to sell to someone worse than him, but he can still sell to someone who he thinks down the road has potential to be worse. I’m just saying that if someone like Thiel and someone like Laurene Powell Jobs both make offers, Sarver (in his own mind) will have an easy choice.
This would be an upgrade as far as big spenders are concerned but somehow a DOWNGRADE for our owner’s humanity. Sarver was a total piece of crap who was a menace to so many in his own company and I’m assuming others outside of it.
Theil is a menace to all of society… period.
I won’t cheer for anything that guy is involved in.
I thought the league and other owners had to approve any sale.
They do? I didn't realize that. Do they always reveal the reason for "no" votes?
Agree. But I don’t think they’ll consider political actions in that vein. But the fact that he authored a book titled “The Diversity Myth” may not be looked at fondly in a league where over 75% of the talent is black.The Suns are being sold because of character issues, right?
Then why would they approve a sale to someone who is a scumbag?
