New Los Angeles Clippers owner Steve Ballmer drew comparisons to Mark Cuban with his high-fiving, chest-bumping, shouting introduction to the franchise’s fan base last week. The scene came as no surprise to the Dallas Mavericks owner, whose enthusiastic exhibitions had been unique among the NBA’s owners. “I’ve known Steve for a long time, going back into my twenties, and he’s always been this way,” Cuban said during an appearance on ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM’s “The Afternoon Show with Cowlishaw and Mosley” last week. “So this isn’t Steve Ballmer getting hyped just for the Clippers. This is just the way he is. He’s going to be great for the league. You know, in reality, I already know, knowing him, he’s going to be a lot calmer than I am. He’s great hyping people up in a sales environment, but it’ll be interesting to see him during a game. I hope he’s crazy, but I’m not expecting it.” ESPN.com

Big Baby got inside ... but the line proved to be too much for McGee and he decided to leave. Might have been the best decision he made all night. Because 90 minutes later, gunshots rang out -- and as TMZ first reported, Suge Knight was shot multiple times. TMZ.com

On Steve Ballmer’s excitement of owning an NBA franchise: “I just wish he would have been around to give those speeches when I first came in. When we were in Reunion Arena, I used to run up and down the aisles trying to get people to cheer and to stand up. Literally, I was running up and down the aisles I was so pumped up and so excited. I remember going into a board of governors meeting and one of the old school guys, I won’t name him since he’s since passed away, said, ‘You haven’t done shinola in this league. You need to sit the eff down and shut the eff up. I never want to see you or hear from you again.' And David Stern literally had to tell him to calm down.” Dallas Morning News

"I'm a confident guy that we have a great product, I'm a confident guy that we're going to have a lot of viewership and fanship," Ballmer continued, and here came that pump-up-the-volume cadence again, "and I'm confident in my ability AS A SALESMAN TO GET PEOPLE FIRED UP!" Los Angeles Times
