Steve Ballmer Buying Los Angeles Clippers Is Magic Johnson Approved

Considering he was the fulcrum around which the entire Donald Sterling saga pivoted, Magic Johnson’s approval of the Los Angeles Clippers’ next owner seems to hold a little extra weight. On Thursday, after news surfaced that former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer was purchasing the team, the Magic Man tweeted his approval.

Ballmer reportedly submitted a winning bid of $2 billion, besting several groups – including one headed by David Geffen ($1.6 billion).
