Steve Ballmer on buying the Clippers: ‘This was probably the best path for me to take’ | NBA | The Seattle Times


In case you see any out of context quotes, here is the whole article and the piece that some tweets have misquoted: "It was my dream to have a team in Seattle," said Ballmer, speaking locally for the first time since his $2 billion offer in May to buy the Clippers, which is held up in a court battle between the league and outgoing owner Donald Sterling. "I spent some time on that and worked on it and I wish that had worked. I don’t know when that will happen. With luck, maybe it happens in the next few years, but if it takes a few more than that, I decided that this was probably the best path for me to take."
