Say it with me. Suns are the 3rd most bloody profitable NBA franchise

Fantastic article by Doug Thonus on the Bulls:

2000-2009 Chicago Bulls, a dynasty of profits

If there was a world championship for money making, the city of Chicago would bankrupt itself throwing parades for our Chicago Bulls.   The Bulls may not have put all the winning pieces together on the court, but the business side is crushing the competition.


In the NBA, the Bulls are #1 over the past decade.   The second place team?   The Lakers.   Trailing by 100 million in profits.

Bare in mind, over this stretch the Bulls made the playoffs four times and got past the first round once, while never getting past the second round.   The Lakers, in a bigger market, won four titles and made it to the NBA finals two other times over this stretch.   Yet, they fell 100 million short of the profit levels the Bulls achieved.  How is that even possible?

The ways the management puts it, we seem to be bleeding money and our Suns franchise is not profitable. Evidently Sarver and Kerr seems to be more interested in raising their profit margins by selling picks, dumping salary and refusing to sign our proven marque players like JJ and Amare.

How long will Suns fans put up with such nonsense?

Our window to win is this season and next season when Nash is still around with Amare.

So no more trade talks.

No more salary dumps.

And no more selling of picks.

We need to win. After all, you lucky fans in US have been paying for success for a long long time.

Anything else is not acceptable from the players and the management!
