A fine of $10 million and a one-year suspension were imposed early Tuesday morning on Phoenix Suns majority owner Robert Sarver. These punishments came after an ongoing investigation that involved over 300 individuals including former employees and colleagues.

The NBA investigation found that Sarver used vulgar racist language at least five times. Along with racist rhetoric, Sarver was caught participating in “inequitable” behavior towards female employees.

Fans across the league are not happy with the length and severity of Robert Sarver’s punishment. Many believe that the Suns owner should not be allowed to have any role in the NBA indefinitely.

Although $10 million is not pocket change, Robert Sarver has a net worth of $800 million.

 

Questions are even being brought up on whether Suns players will refuse to step on the court until Sarver is completely gone.

 

The common consensus is that Sarver does not deserve to own the Phoenix Suns any longer.

Was the punishment severe enough for Robert Sarver?
