There could be a reality where Jeff Bezos is the owner of a sports franchise. 

The Phoenix Suns are going to be for sale pretty soon after owner Robert Sarver said on Wednesday that he's starting the process of selling the team. 

Ramona Shelbourne went on ESPN on Wednesday to discuss who could have interest in buying the team and she said that Bezos was one of the names out there.

Bezos currently owns Amazon, which is one of the biggest companies in the world.

Sports fans are a bit mixed when it comes to seeing Bezos as a potential team owner.

If Bezos does try and put a bid in for the team, this would be the second sport that he'd be involved in. 

Amazon already owns the exclusive rights to Thursday Night Football after agreeing to a deal last year. 

We'll have to see if Bezos' interest is serious or not.
