To achieve the kind of wealth that allows a person to buy a sports franchise, he or she must automatically designate someone as a detractor in some way. There can be no ordinary billionaires, and now sports teams are so ridiculously overvalued that only the richest of the rich can afford them. Means warping of warping. Anything and anyone has to be rolled over, any corner has to be cut, rules are broken, one will have to see the world a certain way to take over them.
Mat Ishbia, who is going to own The Phoenix Sun and Mercury, do not seem to be a completely dangerous lunatic or so egotistical that they can no longer distinguish reality from their own fantasies, like some billionaires. own team or want. At least not on the surface, but there is still time.
However, if you watched HBO’s Real Sports section on Ishbia, he’s… off. If you’ve ever wondered what would happen if your team manager or high school curator took revenge, here it is. Basically, if Rudy had a franchise.
Ishbia’s story differs from most other billionaires’ stories in that he technically played Division I college basketball. He was on the Michigan State national championship team. He went to the floor at the last minute after some strikes. He’s the chubby guy you always see waving a towel on the bench. His passion for sports is undeniable. The purchase of Suns is more than just some addition to a portfolio. Of course, that could lead to other problems in the future, but we’ll save it.
What Real Sports wants to focus on is Ishbia’s undying dedication to Michigan State, and beyond that is the team’s basketball coach Tom Izzo. It was the basis for his entire rise to the top of the mortgage world, at least that was in his head. You’ll have to forgive us if we don’t trust anyone in the mortgage business for helping to keep their business growing while achieving great success. You know, they almost bankrupted the entire country not too long ago (and will probably try again).
Ishbia’s fascination with Izzo is almost truly uncanny, as Izzo hasn’t really proven to be any different from any other basketball coach. As Real Sports tends to do, it won’t deviate from the story it wants to tell. That’s okay when they dig things up, as they did in their report on Qatar years ago. However, Izzo is not clear about stink of most college programs. Izzo basically tried to keep it quiet out of all this, which he doesn’t. 1 Ishbia fan has never been asked about, probably not to tarnish the image of Izzo Ishbia’s savior in his head.
There is also the matter of Ishbia and the State of Michigan and their battle with Free Pres DetroitS about the deal awarded to football coach Mel Tucker, how much Ishbia contributed to that deal and what kind of influence it had on him at school. That’s hardly anything new in the post-Boone Pickens world, though.
What the HBO story gives us is how much Ishbia still incorporates from his 14th working days, and anyone devoted to college basketball in his later life should be watched carefully. Ishbia will tell anyone who listens that the lessons he learns from Izzo, as if they were handed down on the rocks at the top of the mountain., is what has allowed him to become a billionaire capable of this purchase. He even hires former teammates in the company, though Mateen Cleaves’ motivational speeches have to do with what Ishbia employees do is a rather confusing puzzle. He certainly believes in the concept of the team, although someone who is a bench starter would have to, to justify his existence, right? That’s probably why he ordered his staff back to the office full time long ago, the mark of a true psychopath today. But if you’re drunk on the USool-Aid that team means everything, instead of talent and giving that talent space to do what it does, you might think this is why you are successful.
At the end of the day, Ishbia is simply taking over his father’s company and doing some work. rich guy shit to become even richer. It’s not like he built it from scratch. I’m not sure Izzo told his team where to have a wealthy family before the season, but I guess it has to be somewhere if Ishbia is preaching this gospel.
You can forget Ishbia is a hands-free owner, and maybe you should find out how many days it takes him to call one of his players for no hustle, because that’s all he does. could do and somehow Izzo has earned a reputation for his teams trying harder than most. Maybe we’ll get lucky and this idiot will order his GM to stay away from the stars completely and put on the team a bunch of daredevils to show off and we can laugh at the Sun forever. . That would be the proper story of what happens when you bring Rudy to his full potential.
