L.A. Clippers Sale

Ballmer's $2 Billion Offer

'ALL CASH'

5/30/2014 10:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Steve Ballmer Buys Clippers Cash
File Under: "You Know You're Rich When" ... YOU CAN MAKE A $2 BILLION CASH OFFER TO BUY AN NBA TEAM ... like Steve Ballmer just did with the Clippers. 

Sources familiar with the sale tell us ... the ex-Microsoft CEO was able to separate himself from the pack of potential L.A. Clippers buyers by making an "ALL CASH" offer to buy the squad. 

Clearly, Shelly Sterling likey. 

It's not like Ballmer has a problem coming up with the dough -- he's worth an estimated $20 BILLION according to Forbes.

"Shelley Sterling likey." That's racist against Asians TMZ. You should be forced to sell to Gawker and have Harvey declared mentally incompetent.

Ballmer would be a bad owner. He knows nothing about money obviously. He was a horrible CEO at Microsoft. Everything they put out when he was CEO was garbage nobody wanted. You'd think he'd at least understand the Clippers aren't worth half what he offered. The amount should be maybe $850 to $900 million at the most. The Clippers haven't won a thing in all their years. Again this year they were chokers. He must think he's buying the Lakers.
