Suns owner apologizes to fans for lack of Spurs stars

Phoenix blew out the defending champion San Antonio Spurs 121-90 on Thursday night, but Suns owner Robert Sarver wasn’t happy. 

Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Spurs coach Gregg Popovich did not travel with the team for the preseason game. NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard also did not play due to an eye infection. 

Because few of the Spurs’ stars were in Phoenix to give the fans a show, a disappointed Sarver apologized to the crowd and told them he would give them a gift if they send back their ticket stubs. 

The Spurs recently returned from a Global Games tour in Turkey and Germany.
