Donald Sterling is officially out and the Los Angeles Clippers have a new sheriff in town. Steve Ballmer, a former Microsoft CEO, has purchased the team as of yesterday. His $ 2 billion bid was placed with the organization back in May.
Ballmer said, “I am humbled and honored to be the new owner of the Los Angeles Clippers. Clipper fans are so amazing. They have remained fiercely loyal to our franchise through some extraordinary times. I will be hard-core in giving the team, our great coach, staff and players the support they need to do their best work on the court.”
