In his tenure as the new owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, Steve Ballmer has been an absolute delight. He’s goofy, he’s passionate and most importantly, he’s not a delusional and hypocritical racist. Last night against the San Antonio Spurs, Ballmer showed us a full scale of emotions.
Exhibit A: Absolutely astonished Steve Ballmer
A huge DeAndre Jordan lob-slam can do that to anyone. But after the Clippers got off to a hot start, and the game started to get close, nerves settled in.
Exhibit B: Nervous Ballmer
Missing a close range fist bump? That has to be him wondering in the back of his head if his team would squander another big lead at home in the playoffs. Focus Steve.
Exhibit C: Totally exasperated Ballmer
Here he’s channeling his inner Jerry Tarkanian, after more foolish play (and a sort of dumb rule) once again, led the Clips to another heartbreaking loss, putting the Spurs up 3-2 in the series.
