“I hope it’s hyperextended. I hope that’s all it is, because if it is, he might miss a game or two. I hope it’s not worse. That’s the last thing we need, missing that guy.”

Clippers’ Steve Ballmer Talks New Arena, Tanking, Down Year

The Los Angeles Clippers appear to be headed for a rough season but team owner Steve Ballmer rejects the idea that the team is going to be in tank mode, or that the team will simply accept a losing season.

“That ain’t us. Nuh-uh, no way,” Ballmer said toClippers’ season ticket holders and fans, according to the Los Angeles Times’ Helene Elliot.

“People can do it their way. We’re going to be good our way. We’re not going to show up and suck for a year, two years. I think we got higher expectations on us than the long, hard five, six years of absolute crap like the 76ers put in. How could we look you guys in the eye if we did that to you?”

Naturally, the Clippers need to talk the talk in with season ticket owners and fans, they have a business to run, but Ballmer was not reserved about his intentions to move the Clippers out of the Staples Center, where they currently share a home with the Los Angeles Lakers.

“We’re moving to Inglewood come hell or high water,” he said of a proposed arena near the site of the stadium being constructed for the NFL’s Rams and Chargers. “We gotta have a house. So we’re working on a plan to get our own house. We want to get our own house. It turns out the way this works in L.A., which is much beloved to me, that if you start now you might be done in six years.”

Although Ballmer is determined to move out of the Staples Center, he has no intentions of leaving Los Angeles.

“I love L.A. I also love my wife, by the way, but I love L.A. and I don’t want there to be any mistake about it. We want to be part of the fabric of this community” Ballmer said.
