Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is clear to move ahead with his $2 billion purchase of the LA Clippers today after a judge ruled against the current owners objection to the sale, reports The New York Times. Ballmer brokered his deal for the team with owner Donald Sterlings wife, who was said at the time to have legal standing to sell the team, after her husband was banned for life from the NBA for making a series of racist statements. The judge also ruled that the Clippers sale to Ballmer could go through immediately, the Times reports. Ballmers purchase of the Clippers comes very shortly after his departure from Microsoft — itll be a very different business to run, but theres good reason to believe that Ballmer can make good money from the team.
