    Let's see if he does any better running the Clippers than he did Microsoft!

    Probably a bad case of nostalgia . . . I doubt if Steve Ballmer's head has seen clippers (or hair) in many years.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    Guess I can put my wallet back in my pocket now.

    He might well have overpaid though. I think the last NBA team to come up for sale went for a mere half billion IIRC. This year they have a higher profile than most of the California teams but for most of their history that has not been true

    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Thanks. Didn't remember which team it was.

    I realize a franchise in a large market like LA or New York would be worth more but I doubt that the difference is a factor of four. The record of the team matters two. Roughly two billion for the Lakers might be close to right. Yes I know the Lakers are not so good right now but when you buy a franchise you're buying the whole kit 'n caboodle.

    Every new player signed gets a copy of Windows 8.1 and a Zune whether they want one or not. Elite players get as many copies of Windows Me as they can carry away.

    lol Not looking into that too closely. Might end up with something i really don't want.

    Maybe they can use this to get the crowd going before tip off.

    Hey Sly, I've got a genuine WinME disk here still in its original jacket that you can have. You can put it alongside your copy of Vista!

    I have always wondered - at what level income do the execs have to be on to cheer that crap 'going crazy'. Certainly not junior level who would cringe!

    Harry, when I first saw that video, considering his weigh†*and age I was concerned screaming and jumping like that he might just have a stoke!
