According to ESPN, the NBA announced on Tuesday that former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer officially owns the Los Angeles Clippers.
quote:

Ballmer, the former Microsoft CEO, bid $2 billion for the Clippers in May but wasn't able to complete the sale until Tuesday's written court order affirmed Shelly Sterling's authority to sell the franchise without the consent of her husband, Donald Sterling.

"It's very, very exciting. I'm a basketball nut," Ballmer said in an interview with ESPN's Ramona Shelburne. "I've got time. I love Los Angeles. I love Seattle, too, which is where we have our home. But the notion of spending a lot of time in Los Angeles has been exciting to me for years. The community down there is great. I look forward to supporting the community, the fan base, the staff, Doc [Rivers] and the players to take this thing to higher heights."
Ballmer will travel to Los Angeles later this week to have dinner with the team, then meet with Clippers employees and fans at an event Monday.
