Robert Pera

Recommended Posts

I wish we had an owner who seemed like he cared about the team. It's his team and he can do as he wishes, but it just appears that he could not care less. He may be in contact with the FO every day, but you sure wouldn't know it. I don't want him acting like the GM, but it would be nice if he would give some assurance that the team has some kind of plan moving forward to fix this mess.

If he had a quality F.O. then I could care less about him, but he doesn't, so I have to agree with you.

I think he and Gasol are buddies, so he talks to someone around here. 

It's pretty obvious that he doesn't pay much attention, if just for the fact that he gave Chris Wallace an extension a year ago. Maybe after he buys out the other guy's shares he'll be more interested in keeping an eye on the team.

If you get a new owner, you might just as easily get a meddler, or even a Donald Sterling.

Careful what you wish for.

Not until the last couple of years owning the team, when he had passed off the day to day operations of Heico off to his kids. Pera is still the driving force behind Ubiquiti. I've no problem with man taking care of his cash cow over his play toy. Without the cow, he couldn't afford the toy.

He may not be at the games but look at all the upgrades to the FedExForum. Millions of dollars in behind the scenes stuff also as in lockers and training rooms. Plus a Grizz owned minor league team right down the street. You think that's city/county money? Heck no, that's all Robert Pera. He may be an absentee owner but he's funding this franchise incredibly well, much more than Michael Heisley did.
