Phoenix Suns fans have has enough of owner Robert Sarver, who is arguably the worst owner in the NBA.

Fans are taking their disdain a step further, and have started a petition to force Sarver to sell the team.

Sarver has been brutally terrible with his running of the once proud and successful organization, with his constant meddling and micro-managing that has held the Suns team back.

The recent issues with Talking Stick Arena and Sarver, who threatened relocation before backtracking, was the breaking point for 
longtime fan Josh Miller, who started a petition on the website change.org, according to The Arizona Republic.

“From their inception in 1968, through 2010, the Phoenix Suns were one of the NBA’s model franchises,” wrote Miller in the petition’s description. “The Suns were typically among contenders for the NBA championship. In their history, the Suns have won 7 division titles, and played in the NBA Finals twice. Despite not winning a championship, until recently, the Suns had the fourth highest winning percentage in NBA history.”

The petition goes on to make a plea for NBA Commissioner Adam Silver to step in:

“The only solution is for Mr. Silver to force Robert Sarver to sell the team to an owner who wants to invest in the franchise and is interested in putting together a basketball team that can compete in the NBA.”
