The legal wrangling and lawsuits are done and it's official, the NBA has announced that former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is now the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers. He paid a reported $2 billion for the team, the highest sale price for a franchise in league history, after tapes leaked of former owner Donald Sterling making racist remarks. So now that Ballmer has the team in-hand, what's next? Players like Chris Paul and Blake Griffin have spoken out in support of the new team owner (superfan Clipper Darrell has also chimed in), so we're guessing he's not going to make a Clippy-related logo change anytime soon. Ballmer told the LA Times he intends to build the team into a champion, which would be a far cry from the squad fans were used to under Sterling.
