For the second time this year, yours truly was quoted by the New York Times, aka the newspaper of record. In a story on the finalized sale of the team to Steve Ballmer, author Billy Witz asked me for a quote that would summarize the average Clipper fans' feelings.
"It takes this real cloud out from over the team," Steve Perrin, the managing editor of a Clippers' fan site, ClipsNation.com, said of Ballmer's purchase. "Sterling was always there hanging over everything, even when they got Blake Griffin, Chris Paul and Doc Rivers and started winning playoff series. It was always in the back of your mind that he could screw things up."
I hope I represented the citizenry well enough with that quote.
