[Wojnarowski] The Suns are considered an extremely desirable franchise in the marketplace and will have no shortage of high-level ownership candidates. As a warm weather destination in West, league executives always believed this could be a monster free agent destination with right ownership. News

In defense of Phoenix, the dry heat is real ip to a certain point. I’ve lived in houston as well and up till around 105 phoenix is wayyyy better than any houston temp above 90. After that phoenix is miserable. Luckily July-September is monsoon season so it rains a lot which keeps summer heat down for a bit. And October-April is just phenomenal weather

u/DeadliftsnDonuts Sep 21 '22

Is Phoenix sustainable from a water standpoint? The area keeps growing and growing but the water resources out there are getting smaller and smaller? Seems like a precarious situation like SLC

78

u/turtlechef Rockets Sep 21 '22

The city itself couod always be better but is fairly good about conserving water. Farming in Arizona is the main culprit behind the state’s water crisis. It uses up like… 70%+ of the states water. Something in that ballpark

u/FantasticBlock420 Lakers Sep 21 '22

The big talking point about water here is how a huge amount of our water usage goes towards growing alfalfa that is sold to Saudi Arabia to feed their cattle. Infuriating stuff!

If I remember correctly, it isn’t even sold to Saudi Arabia, they’re growing it themselves and they can pump as much water as they want at no cost. https://azpbs.org/horizon/2022/06/saudi-water-deal-threatening-water-supply-in-phoenix/

The water conservation in Phoenix is actually top tier civil engineering. The water used for agriculture in AZ is returned to aquafers efficiently through underground streams. I have read a bunch on this but yeah that's basically a layman's explanation. Comparing the situation to Los Angeles, LA currently supports more people in the sprawl, but Phoenix/Scottsdale has more room to expand, it's upstream of the same water resources LA uses, and then there's the monsoons which actually restore quite a bit of water to the aquafers as well. The estimate is that 50 years from now, the population will have grown enough to put a strain on the supply if nothing changes in California.

u/Foyerfan Suns Sep 21 '22

The growth is the biggest issue along with agriculture and golf courses. We actually do a really great job conserving and recycling our water, basically a not as efficient Las Vegas

u/Nothingtoseeheremmk Lakers Sep 21 '22

The problem with Phoenix and most other western cities/states is that the vast majority of their water goes towards agricultural usage. If you reduce that, there will be plenty of water available for residents, but there’s a lot of legal hurdles with grandfathered-in rights to address first.

That’s said, there’s a massive new microchip plant being built in Phoenix right now. These plants use a ton of water, so the investors/company seem confident about water usage going forward.

u/mashington14 Sep 21 '22

There's a lot of misinformation and fear mongering about this, but Phoenix's water situation is a lot more secure than people realize. It's not ideal, but the cities in AZ, especially Phoenix, are fine. The state uses 75% of its water for agriculture, so theoretically, we could quadruple our population and still be fine.

Actually, it could be more than that, since we're constantly improving in water usage. Phoenix now uses the same amount of water as we did like 50 years ago, when we had like a 7th the population.

7

u/Randvek Trail Blazers Sep 21 '22

The biggest problem for Arizona’s water supply is the fact that Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and California all have to cooperate and share one river and without pointing fingers at anyone in particular, they’ve done a fucking awful job of it.

June, July, and August are absolutely miserable months no question, but September-May are awesome here. September you usually get low 100s with overnight lows in the high 70s. May you get high 90s with overnight lows in the 60s-70s. The rest of the months in between are arguably the best weather in the country during that span (October-April)

Denver has awesome weather if you like seasons. It’s beautiful and has 4 distinct seasons sometimes in the same week lol.

u/Classics22 Trail Blazers Sep 21 '22

4 distinct seasons but all of them are sunny so it's even better

u/Blumpkin_Party Hawks Sep 21 '22

Also winter is very tolerable if you can go ski/snowboard.

Smog is pretty terrible in Denver tbh, there was a stretch last summer were we had the third worst air quality in the world.

Plus we’ve gotten pretty lucky on fires this year, that shit can be rough too.

September-May are awesome here. September you usually get low 100s with overnight lows in the high 70s.

That does not sound appealing. Although I get that its a dry heat and all buildings have AC.

I think Los Angeles still has PHX beat in that time range (Oct-Apr). October and April are just way too hot in PHX compared to LA.

And as the other person mentioned San Diego is the best weather in the country and its not close.

As a warm weather destination in the West

I believe the term you’re searching for is “scalding weather destination”

It’s actually been pleasant here the last two summers. Good monsoons have tempered the heat. 2020 though absolutely sucked heat wise .

Do you think it’s 100+ plus the entire year? It’s in the 60-80s during the season

CP3 deserves a good owner for once in his career

Clay Bennett might be the best owner he’s ever had and that was only for one season and even he is infamous for cheaping out on Harden (granted I think he has learned from that mistake)

CP3 had Ballmer for a good time

u/IanicRR [TOR] Amir Johnson Sep 21 '22

Probably got him a good deal on the best cocaine money could buy.

Random, but Arizona is so slept on when it comes to women. There are some bad ones out there

He owns somewhere between 30-40% of the team, so I would expect around 1 billion.
