Larry Fitzgerald was an Arizona institution already.

Now he owns a share of another one.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Cardinals wide receiver has bought a minority stake in the NBA’s Phoenix Suns.

That makes him the second active NFL player to buy into an NBA team, along with Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who has a share in the Milwaukee Bucks.

The 36-year-old Fitzgerald, who just re-upped for a 17th season with the Cardinals, has been close with Suns owner Robert Sarver for years. He has sat in on interviews with front office candidates and worked with them on other issues. He’s been a season-ticket holder since 2005.

  1. Sure would be nice if stories like this led headlines instead of Antonio Brown is acting like person who has lost his marbles. Thanks, Larry for always been a role model, no one needs you to be perfect but instead behave like a human others will want to grow to emulate.

  2. Not sure if the NBA is a solid investment. Bidwell should have gotten word about Larry’s desire to invest in a spoirts club and offered him a small sliver of the Cardinals…..NFL is making hand over fist in profits. Would have been a smart move on Bidwells part.

  3. I get that he played football in Arizona for 17 years and he’s an Arizona legend but

    of ALL the nba teams

  4. Has always been a class act. I have rooted for the Cardinals just because of him(except when they play against my team).

    When he retires the NFLPA needs to hire him in some sort of mentoring role for younger players.

  5. Very bad investment, Suns owner Robert Sarver has run this once proud franchise in
    to one of the worst teams year in and year out. He has to be one if not the worst
    owner in the history of professional sports.

    This is where his team killing contract money was spent. Enjoy it Cardinal fans.

    Oh please. The Cardinals have made a lot of bad decisions over the years. Paying Larry Fitzgerald is NOT one of them.

  7. Robert Sarver, a partner in the Suns ownership, has been the worst operator in professional sports for about a decade. He has dropped the Suns to the bottom of the barrel. Larry is not dumb, the value of the Suns has nowhere to go but up. Once Sarver is gone, this could become a really good franchise.

    Your logic is sound except Sarver has showed no need or desire to sell off the team any time soon. Larry could be in for a long wait.
