Sarver: ‘Eventually…the facts of my role, of my involvement, will come out’

Robert Sarver’s name has come up often with regards to the
NBA’s labor talks, and usually not in a positive light.

While refusing to speak directly to the issue because of
league rules, the Suns owner wants to remind everyone that
the truth of his involvement will, at some point, be known.

“I can say that eventually, when it’s over, the facts of my
role and my involvement will come out,” he said. “And I look
forward to that happening.”

It is somewhat unfair to believe everything written about
Sarver, seeing how nobody who has actually been in the
negotiating rooms has said a word, but the owner’s
reputation has certainly worked against him the last few

“As you know, don’t believe everything you read,” Sarver
