The rumors of Steve Ballmer wanting to pick up the Los Angeles Clippers can now come to an end. It's official. In a statement released on the NBA site confirming the deal, Steve Ballmer now owns the Los Angeles Clippers pending approval by the NBA Board of Governors.
What Steve plans to do with the team in the long run remains unknown but hey, I'm sure there will be plenty of Clippy jokes to be had from this one. What do you folks think about it all?

some people doesn't seem to understand what you really buy when you buy a team it's the spot it has in NBA or NFL or MLS or whatever... you can't just create a team and put it there. so yeah after adquisition is approved, Ballmer should move it someday to Seattle... why not? he always said he wanted a team and move it to Seattle because a NBA team from Seattle wouldn't magically appear until someone does what Ballmer might do.
it's silly he can't do it sooner like other sports but oh well... at least he has a NBA team lol.
But... Go Lakers!
but please keep commenting things you seem not to even understand.
now Ballmer has to use his own money like if Microsoft didnt have? oh yeah it makes sense /s oh also, Microsoft can't do much if a developer doesnt want to bring apps to the ecosystem. even if Microsoft pays millions... what can make you think the developer will keep supporting the ecosystem? nothing. and that has happened like Kik and other guys that never update their apps anymore.
Please don't take it up the butt.. ..... ..... Although I'll admit, my spiel in the app ecosystem was a bit.. Irrelevant.
But hey, it's his money, collected from us users that he is spending.
I wish him good luck with this football, hockey or whatever team he's buying ;)
Looks like you are trying to buy a basketball team. Can I be if assistance? Cortana:
I heard that he lately got some new kind of affiliation. It's nice to see him get good press for once. Ballmer:
BASKETBALL, BASKETBALL, BASKETBALL! (wish the comment system showed emoticons... Cortana-like Dot, a paperclip, and a bald dude with glasses, all unsupported....)
