    Default Clippers Sold

    http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nba/s...geles-clippers

    I may be a fan of Microsoft products, but have never been a very big fan of Steve....and in my opinion the company was never the same after Bill left....

    Among those interested, Oprah, Sting, Donald Trump, David Geffen, Larry Ellison, Floyd Mayweather and Magic Johnson but they lost out and Balmer's bid has closed the sale.

    At first I thought it was a whole big conspiracy theory of Magic Johnson trying to boycott the ownership and buy the team for himself. I figured he planned it and used that crazy woman that started the whole dilemma, but then realised it was really not that probable. But I guess it isn't so...

    There were some talks of boycotts if Sterling still owned the team at the start of the next season. I didn't think the sale would be finalised as quickly as it was, I thought he would try and tie up the NBA in a legal battle for years.
