Suns owner Robert Sarver heaped racial and gender abuse on his employees, using the N-word at least five times and sexually harassing several employees, the NBA revealed last week after a nearly year-long investigation. ESPN first reported allegations of racism and misogyny last November. But the league office last week let Sarver off with a relative slap on the wrist: a one-year suspension and $10 million fine.
Add Draymond Green to the growing chorus of player voices who are clearly unsatisfied with the punishment. "Our league definitely got this wrong," LeBron James said last week. "There is no place in this league for that kind of behavior."
