Congratulations Robert Sarver. You are the winner of today’s PBT “You made the bed, you lie in it” award.
Sarver, the Suns owner, was one of the hardline NBA owners who helped drag this lockout. He was for much of the lockout part of the small market owners who wanted to recover their losses from the players’ pockets (even though he overpaid for the franchise and a lot of his losses are tied to debt service on that price).
So here we are left with a condensed 66-game schedule. And Sarver doesn’t like it, not one bit, according to Paul Coro at the Arizona Republic. The Suns have no home games against Boston, Chicago, Miami, New York and Orlando from the East, and fewer games against the Lakers and other West powerhouses than many other teams.
“I was disappointed for our fans,” Suns Managing Partner Robert Sarver said. “When the preliminary schedule came out, I asked the league to reconsider and they didn’t. You’ve got to factor in all the arenas and timelines, and they weren’t able to move dates around.”
