NBA World Reacts to Robert Sarver News

Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver is selling the team, and there's a party going on in the streets of Twitter.

On Wednesday, Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver publicly announced via press release his intentions to sell both the Suns and the Phoenix Mercury. 

"But in our current unforgiving climate, it has become painfully clear that that is no longer possible – that whatever good I have done, or could still do, is outweighed by things I have said in the past. For those reasons, I am beginning the process of seeking buyers for the Suns and Mercury," said Sarver.

After details emerged of the NBA's investigation into Sarver (which found repeated use of racial slurs and sexist comments to employees and players), it felt as if it was only a matter of time until Sarver would sell his holdings in both organization. 

Needless to say, after the news dropped, people around the league felt relieved.
