Ballmer even gives out his email address for fans to get in touch…
New Los Angeles Clippers owner Steve Ballmer arrived with a bang on Monday as he revelled in the atmosphere with the fans and even gave out his email address.
After coming out of the Staples Center tunnel to Eminem’s “Lose Yourself”, Ballmer seriously took the lyrics to the song to heart as he crushed hands with ‘high-fives’ and screamed his way past fans.
However, it was received well from the supporters in attendance as they look ahead to a new era for the franchise after former owner Donald Sterling was caught making racist remarks last season and was duly banned from the NBA before being forced to sell the Clippers.
Ballmer appears to have made himself a real favourite already after this hyped-up effort, and his passion is sure to have gone down well as reports circulated that he spent around 15 minutes merely screaming as fans screamed back.
In addition, if any of the Clippers fans would like to get in contact with their franchise’s new owner, Ballmer was kind enough to reveal that they can find him at Sballmer@clippers.com, while his phrase “Boom, baby” capped off a memorable first public appearance as Clippers owner.
