Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer Buys the Los Angeles Clippers For $2 Billion!

Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has just bought the Los Angeles Clippers from disgraced former owner Donald Sterling and his ex Shelly for a whopping $2 billion!

“I am delighted that we are selling the team to Steve, who will be a terrific owner,” Shelly Sterling said (via Variety). “We have worked for 33 years to build the Clippers into a premiere NBA franchise. I am confident that Steve will take the team to new levels of success.”

“I will be honored to have my name submitted to the NBA Board of Governors for approval as the next owner of the Los Angeles Clippers. I love basketball,” Steve said in a statement. “And I intend to do everything in my power to ensure that the Clippers continue to win – and win big – in Los Angeles. L.A. is one of the world’s great cities – a city that embraces inclusiveness, in exactly the same way that the NBA and I embrace inclusiveness. I am confident that the Clippers will in the coming years become an even bigger part of the community. I thank Shelly Sterling for her willingness to entrust the Clippers franchise to me, and I am grateful to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and his colleagues for working collaboratively with me throughout this process.”

Donald was forced to sell the Clippers after being banned from the NBA for his racist remarks.
