Did you catch the following nugget from Adrian Wojnarowski?
“Sarver has discussed with prospective job candidates a senior advising role that will allow interim GM James Jones to continue in a lead front-office capacity with decision-making power, league sources said. Jones had sat in on interviews, along withArizona CardinalsAll-Pro receiverLarry Fitzgerald, league sources said”
You read that correctly. Larry Fitzgerald sat inside rooms during the Phoenix Suns interview process.
Despite statements from many NBA insiders that Robert Sarver is the worst the NBA has to offer.
From Brian Windhorst: ““With the exception of Donald Sterling, Robert Sarver has the lowest approval rating of any owner since I’ve been covering the league,”
From Charles Barkley: ““Robert does not have a good reputation. He’s a control freak, apparently. Robert wants to make all of the decisions. He won’t give control to the people who work for him. He hires them but he won’t let them do their jobs”
Of course we kicked off our Monday show & had some huge disagreement about what this all meant for Sarver & Larry Fitzgerald.
