Reunion with the Arizona woman who went viral for dunking the owner of Phoenix Suns

Meet the Arizona woman who went viral for blasting the owner of Phoenix Suns

In 2018, 89-year-old Greta Rogers became an internet sensation when she went after Suns owner Robert Sarver at a Phoenix City Council meeting when the team needed money to help renovate the arena.

The Suns sought $ 150 million from the Phoenix City Council to renovate the downtown arena, and they didn’t have it.

“Mr Sarver hasn’t done anything to improve this team in the 14 years he’s owned it,” Rogers said in the now-viral council meeting. “It’s so tight, it squeaks when you walk.”

Fast forward to 2021. The Suns made it through the first round of the playoffs – and Greta, now 91, still has a lot to say.

Now the Suns are one of the best teams in basketball, the arena has been renovated, and Greta … is Greta.

“I can’t take crap,” she said. “That’s the sum.”

Now 91, Rogers is as much a throwback as her Zenith cabinet TV.

She says she never wanted to go viral, she just cares about the city.

“It doesn’t matter if you live here or in Philadelphia or Spokane,” she said. “Our taxes should support our place of residence!”

As for the suns, she may not be watching, but she will look for them.

“I respect her for her talents and her successes,” said Greta. “They just have a guy who’s an SOB that they belong to.”
