STARTING AT THE TOP: ESPN’s Bill Simmons said there is a case to be made that Sarver is "the worst owner in the league." The Suns were in the Western Conference Finals in ‘10, but in three years, "they’ve dismantled this team." Simmons: "They don’t have a single major asset that you would point to and be like, ‘Well, at least they have that guy.’ It’s a mess and I don’t think it’s getting better. ... The Suns have great fans, 40 years of great history and I think they deserve a better owner.” ESPN’s Michael Wilbon said Phoenix is “one of the few cities with all four major league sports franchises where basketball is No. 1." Wilbon: "They care about basketball” (“Kia NBA Countdown,” ESPN, 1/30).
