Found His Calling?
I am still wondering if this is truly a done deal. If it is, I can see Steve Ballmer being an excellent owner of a basketball team, and of the Clippers in particular. People are criticizing him for spending too much money on the team but I think those critics need to watch Brewster’s Millions. It isn’t like he is going to starve if he loses money and has to dip into his savings a bit. In fact, it would be downright difficult to consume the amount of cheddar he has.
The Clippers play some of the most exciting basketball in the league and I get the feeling Mr. Ballmer has never been happier. Unlike working for Microsoft, owning a sports franchise seems like a perfect fit for him. The drama will mostly be over by next October and I am looking forward to the Clippers’ fresh start.
