Steve Ballmer needs something to keep him busy now that he’s left his position as CEO of Microsoft, and he may have just found it in the NBA. The former tech executive has reportedly put down a record $2 billion to buy the Los Angeles Clippers, reports The Los Angeles Times. The deal was reached with Shelly Sterling, the wife of Clippers owner Donald Sterling and the person in charge of the bidding, but it reportedly still needs approval from Donald too. Remarks from his lawyer suggest that Sterling may not be ready to give up his team just yet, though he may be forced to soon.
Well, a guy’s gotta keep busy, you know. And it’s not like he can’t afford to have a hobby.
Betcha he doesn’t let anybody make sub rosa recordings of him, either.
