The NBA’s Robert Sarver saga has been a master class in cognitive dissonance.

In response to an investigation detailing an 18-year pattern of misogyny, sexism, and abuse inside the Phoenix Suns franchise, trickling down from governor Robert Sarver, commissioner Adam Silver described himself on Wednesday as saddened and disheartened, calling Sarver’s conduct “indefensible” and “beyond the pale.” But unlike in the case of Donald Sterling in 2014, Silver said the possibility of banning Sarver from the league was never mentioned. “There was no discussion around the process of removing him,” Silver said in a press conference.

Forcing Sarver to sell the team likely would have meant a legal battle, which would have led to wide-ranging review of league documents and emails that could have revealed the indiscretions of other governors. It would have meant a fight; it would have meant risking upheaval. But the NBA didn’t have the moral courage or stamina of the Suns employees who spoke up against their billionaire boss.
