Steve Ballmer

Our favorite second-CEO of Microsoft Steve Ballmer has just been cleared to buy the Los Angeles Clippers. They're the professional basketball team that Ballmer has been trying to buy for $2 billion. Former owner, Donald Sterling, has prevented the sale with a lawsuit. Today a judge has ruled against Sterling and Ballmer is cleared to buy the Clippers.

Here's the NBA on the Sterling ruling:

"We are pleased that the court has affirmed Shelly Sterling's right to sell the Los Angeles Clippers to Steve Ballmer. We look forward to the transaction closing as soon as possible."


Ballmer has always been an energetic guy. We can't wait to see the energy he brings to L.A. Now we just need the team to be renamed to the Los Angeles Clippys.
