Steve Ballmer absolutely crushed his entrance at the Clippers Fan Festival on Monday afternoon.
All reports indicate that the former Microsoft CEO refused to simmer down after grabbing the microphone on the court.
Lofty promises were made.
The phrase “Boom, baby" made an appearance.
The former Microsoft CEO also gave out his email address on the Jumbotron.
I would’ve guessed “BallmIsLife” as his handle, but “SBallmer” works, too.
In any case, the Steve Ballmer era with the Clippers is off to an emphatic, teeth-grinding start. Ballmer, who picked up the Clippers for an NBA record $2 billion this month, appears ready to set a new tone for his franchise.
I do feel bad for Mr. Ballmer’s assistant, though. Tending that email address just became a full-time job.
