Steve Ballmer: The Perfect and Prototypical NBA Owner With No Team

Networkworld.com
From our friend Chris Daniels:

NBA Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver tonight on preliminary decision to deny relocation of Kings to Seattle:

"I think some people are surprised at the preliminary decision the relocation committee has made because they say well but look at Seattle. There are more corporate headquarters, There's more TV households, there's the potential to generate more revenue there. Shouldn't you move a franchise to the market where there is more revenue? And, I, our response is not necessarily, that if you look at total value over time and brand building and community support that continuity is important."

NBA Commish David Stern also called Steve Ballmer a "Perfect Prototype for an NBA Owner", but said Sacramento came through with a plan and investors and that's why the committee made the recommendation they did.

The comments were made on the Charlie Rose show, which airs on PBS.
