Hey Robert, maybe the problem is less “Millennial Culture” and more that you split a clinically insane person up from the twin brother he was wildly co-dependent with, all just to save yourself some salary.
The Arizona Republic — “I’m not sure it’s just the NBA,” Sarver said. “My whole view of the millennial culture is that they have a tough time dealing with setbacks, and Markieff Morris is the perfect example. He had a setback with his brother in the offseason and he can’t seem to recover from it. I’m not sure if it’s the technology or the instant gratification of being online. But the other thing is, I’m not a fan of social media. I tell my kids it’s like Fantasy Land. The only thing people put online are good things that happen to them, or things they make up. And it creates unrealistic expectations. We’ve had a number of setbacks this year that have taken their toll on us, and we haven’t been resilient. Therefore, it’s up to our entire organization to step up their game.”
Hey Robby, hate to break it to you, but Millennial Culture has nothing to do with this. Neither does social media or generational coping skills or whatever other concept you can concoct in your mind about kids these days.
Markieff Morris is just a really weird dude. A really, really, really weird dude. A dude who might actually be insane. A dude who is so oddly attached to his twin brother that he took less money than he deserved just for the sake of splitting a contract with the twin brother he shares a bank account with. The same brother he shares identical tattoos with, committed an assault with, and plans to live together with for the rest of his life. That’s not normal behavior for twins, let alone for your typical Millennial. Actually, forget “not normal”, that’s just fucking insane behavior.
And you split him up from that twin he was wildly dependent on. You, Robert Sarver, the notoriously cheap owner, split up the twins that have a long track record of going insane when separated, in a salary dump. All as part of your giant ruse of pretending to chase LaMarcus Aldridge–which everyone knew was never happening–so that you could really just save some money while pretending to be competitive.
So no, Robert, the problem is not Millennial Culture. The problem is that you’re the only person who didn’t see that splitting the Morris twins up was a disastrous idea. Anyone with a brain knew that would hang over this team like a black cloud, and it was proven true when Markieff and Marcus complained about the move right way and both demanded a trade for Markieff.Or, even worse, you knew that and still did it just to lower your salary and raise your own profits. Either way, this is not on Millennials or social media or any of that. It’s all a Sarver Problem.
