We all know how we feel about Steve Ballmer stepping away from the Hansen group and purchasing the Clippers to keep them in Los Angeles. But how do others feel?
Twitter is blowing up on the subject and here are some samples.
Just read @CBSSports reporting 37 minutes ago Ballmer to buy Clips for $2B. Sounds like what I've heard as well. Note: Can't confirm yet.— Daina Falk (@TheHungryFan) May 30, 2014
Ballmer would become the richest majority owner in major American sports. Man who held that title? His former boss Paul Allen.— darren rovell (@darrenrovell) May 30, 2014
If Steve Ballmer is paying $2B for Clippers, then what's the expansion fee for a Seattle franchise?— Percy Allen (@percyallen) May 29, 2014
There is now a signed, binding agreement between Ballmer and the Sterling family trust to sell the Clippers for $2billion, ESPN has learned— Ramona Shelburne (@ramonashelburne) May 30, 2014
Ballmer's agreement will go straight to the NBA for final approval, source tells ESPN.— Ramona Shelburne (@ramonashelburne) May 30, 2014
In other words, the signed binding agreement btwn the Sterling family trust & Ballmer for $2b does not need another sign-off from Donald.— Ramona Shelburne (@ramonashelburne) May 30, 2014
Great pt by Attorney @VanWagoner: NBA likely only approves sale if Sterling signs release of any past, present & future legal claims v. NBA.— Michael McCann (@McCannSportsLaw) May 30, 2014
