Suns Practice At Owner’s House As Super Bowl Media Day Takes Over Arena

Don’t you hate it when somebody comes into your workplace and acts like they own the place?

The Phoenix Suns had to deal with some unwelcome guests Tuesday when Super Bowl XLIX Media Day took over US Airways Center. Left without a place to practice, the Suns had to settle for their backup court.

At a mansion.

Hey, some backup locations are better than others.

The Suns moved Tuesday’s practice to team owner Robert Sarver’s 28,000-foot home at his estate in Paradise Valley, Ariz., according to┬ábeat reporter Paul Coro. There, they worked out on the same hardwood that was used at the 2009 NBA All-Star Game and helped themselves to the boss’ treats.

“The nets aren’t used to seeing so many balls go through (them),” Sarver told Coro. “They cleaned out my candy in the┬ábreak room.”

There were worse places to be Tuesday — namely, the Suns’ own arena, where New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick was asked about his favorite stuffed animal and someone from Nickelodeon gave quarterback Tom Brady some Chinese noodles. All things considered, we’d rather be at the mansion with the free candy.
