After discussing the varied responsibilities of an owner I felt like Sarver deserved a post all of his own. He is just unbelievably cheap, but this in itself is not unique among owners. What makes Sarver such a special case is that he owns a team in a relatively large TV market, and one that has had recent success. Other owners derided for a lack of spending own teams in places such as Buffalo, Memphis or Milwaukee. Phoenix is the 12th largest TV market in the country. None of the above professional sports teams are even in the top 30. Sarver has also presided over a successful team over the past few years thanks to the superlative play of Steve Nash. Despite this success, Sarver has repeatedly chosen the bottom line over improving his team. The suns sold the rights to their first round draft pick in four consecutive drafts from 2004-2007. The players lost; Luol Deng, Nate Robinson, Rajon Rondo and Rudy Fernandez. Deng and Rondo are stars and Robinson and Fernandez are serviceable rotation players. By failing to even attempt to improve on his team through the most cost effective way possible, the draft, Sarver has failed in his responsibilities as an owner.
