They can't finance it themselves. It seems like they've been doing their utmost to get the taxpayers to pay for it for them.
Phoenix is not a bad example when you look at their history, including before they even got a team. It would have helped if they had better ownership even before this current mess. But it also would have helped if the market was ready to accept them - which they weren't.
