|Ballmer bids $2B for Clippers|
29 May 2014
The league has required current Clippers owner Donald Sterling to sell the team, following his shocking, public invitation to every African American not to come to the games, but merely screw around with his girlfriend and put video of it on Facebook.
Ballmer retired as CEO of Microsoft four months ago, has a personal net worth of $20 billion, and carries around the amount of the bid as pocket change, frequently flipping a couple million to waitresses and valets, just as tips.

As the bid price represents 150 times what Mr. Sterling paid for the Clippers, President Obama has suggested that Mr. Sterling hold onto the team, lest he "increase income inequality." White House spokesman Art Carney said, "The President's focus right now is getting the name of the Washington Redskins changed. He's very angry about that and has started
