What Will He Be Like on the Clippers' Sidelines?

Steve Ballmer goes crazy in order to profess his love for the company from which he recently retired, some $20-billion richer.

It has to be an act; after all, who could love Microsoft?

But truly, this guy is obviously smart and aggressive, making me wonder how long he'll be satisfied with his franchise being a renter from the Lakers, losing out on the revenue an organization can generate from controlling its venue?

The Clippers will have to become a more consistently solid contending commodity before Ballmer or anyone else will be able to get a Clippers arena built, I think. Even with the $18-billion he has in his bank accounts, it's hard to believe he could take on the building of a new basketball venue on his own or from the revenues the Clippers (may) generate in the future.

But, I'm probably completely wrong. I'm a preacher; not a software mogul, Harvard graduate, or nearly-new NBA franchise owner.

BTW: One thing it's probably safe to say is that Ballmer won't be caught spewing racist rants and that's good.
