Rick Welts: Suns President.... or Fashion Icon??

Rickwelts_200_medium 

"During Rick's seven years with the Suns he has distinguished himself as one of professional sports best operators. Our creativity and success in areas such as marketing partnerships, technology, branding, customer service and this year's NBA All-Star events have all been a result of Rick's leadership," said Suns Owner Robert Sarver.

What does this mean?  It is clear that Mr. Welts sports an impressive sales pitch (and a 100$ haircut) and has used it to suceed in marketing and customer service.

I wonder how that prepares him for his role as Suns President though.   All considered, I am optimistic that he can do a great job in an official suns cheerleader/salesman role for potential free agents and so forth.  The guy is clearly way too short to have actually played basketball though if you see how big the (womens?) ball is compared to the guy.   Let us hope he isn't as "hands on" as Sarver has been or even worse Sarver stays really hands on and adds another set of hands to the decision making above Kerr.
