Colin Kaepernick, Suns minority owner Jahm Najafi spotted at Suns game

Phoenix Suns minority co-owner Jahm Najafi attended tonight's home game against the Atlanta Hawks and sat courtside with noted activist and former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. 

Najafi was one of six minority owners whose name was missing from the Suns' recent ownership statement supporting Robert Sarver (Note: this story originally listed Najafi as the lone owner whose name was missing. This has been corrected). Sarver has recently been embroiled in controversy after a bombshell ESPN article detailed alleged racism, sexism and additional misconduct as part of a hostile work culture. Najafi released his own statement after the report went public:

Kaepernick and Najafi are noted partners; in February, as reported by the Arizona Republic, the two joined as part of a team looking to raise approximately $287 million through a special-purpose acquisition company with a "social purpose in mind."

It is unclear if Kaepernick's attendance is part of some larger statement, or simply a meetup between two business partners. Either way, the Suns and their ownership group will be under intense scrutiny as the NBA begins its investigation into the alleged misconduct.
