Welp..... If true my prayers have been answered. But since it would come on the heels of the massive pain and suffering he has truly caused people (not just my sheer hatred of his business acumen), I would be left feeling deeply sad and hollow about it.

Honestly, I hope this isn't true. The karma wagon for this season has taken a ton of blows already.

I'm waiting to hear more from Adrian Wojnarowski and Shams Charania.

Just when you thought things were looking up. The Ayton contract and now this. If this is true it could force Sarver out.

ha!

oh man... oh man... this is not the start to the defense of the WCF I was hoping for.

this story better have the LOCK-DOWN GOODS to destroy him if it's gonna be real. Nothing he can squirm out of to just have weighing down the franchise like an anchor forever.

If there is fire to this smoke but not enough to get him removed this is a lose-lose for the suns. It will be a distraction for the team and we will still have Sarver.

This is either going to force him out or it's going to be a massive PR nightmare as he wiggles out because the "evidence" is mostly circumstantial and not solid.

Either way? THIS IS BAD BAD BAD for the Suns and ANOTHER distraction.

The problem is buying Sarver out. The current ownership group could buy Sarver out. THe price may be too high and they may be forced to sell to get rid of him. I am just throwing out the possibility that current ownership could come to an agreement to remove Sarver. They would probably have to have Sarver agreeing to his removal.

The NBA could temporarily run the team if necessary.

I mean, other media people are already speculating he's going to be removed as owner?!

man, this better not be a tease. the franchise has already gotten killed nationally this week with the Ayton situation. If this is just "a really bad look" kinda thing and not the stake in the heart of his ownership, that will just be an even bigger black cloud hanging over the franchise.

what is this possibly going to be?

Well, I am not sure how I feel about this.

If Sarver would just sell and sink into the shadows I can't help thinking that would be really good for the franchise.

Somehow I doubt it goes down like that though. I feel like he is going to fight this tooth and nail.
