I don't think that's that big of concern, frankly. No shortage of people who know how to do that. I count 10 (Detroit will become 11) markets where the NBA and NHL share an arena. In fact, that might be one reason Bettman and Silver are teaming up on this, if they can get the number of markets where they *don't* share one (4 - the others are South Florida, NoCal, Minnesota) down to 3 from 5 that's something.

Sarver can stay in his dilapidated arena or share a new arena with the Coyotes. He won't get a new arena unless the Coyotes are part of it. So, stay in the old arena or make a few concessions and get a new arena. Sarver can go to the reservation but the Suns have been a downtown staple for 50 years, would be hard to give that up.

That's a pretty definitive statement there. Are you speaking specifically of downtown Phoenix or are you talking about anywhere in the state?
