My favorite part of this story is a callout from an interview the Wall Street Journal did a week or two ago:
WSJ: So you wouldn’t move the Clippers to Seattle?
Ballmer: If I get interested in the Clippers, it would be for Los Angeles. I don’t work anymore, so I have more geographic flexibility than I did a year, year-and-a half ago. Moving them anywhere else would be value destructive.
Like a nagging, loose tooth, I can’t seem to stop paying attention to Steve Ballmer.
