'Basket Ballmer' sees the ex-Microsoft CEO aim for the hoop, literally

As the owner of the LA Clippers, Steve Ballmer is now focusing his attention on bringing the Larry O'Brien trophy to Los Angeles. Bloomberg Businessweek is running a feature on the executive that offers a glimpse into his life after Microsoft, and his passion for basketball.

Ballmer admits that there is a lot of work to be done before the Clippers can achieve success:

"You've got to decide whether you need to do Version 2.1, or do you need to just blow it up and do a whole renamed product or a Version 3. I think the basic theory is that we're close. We have to work with blood and guts and hard-core commitment and good character on and off the court. You have to be all in."

Ballmer has already mentioned that he was veering players away from using iPads to a Windows-based tablet, and is looking to further integrate technology into the team's training sessions.
