Let’s see…I have $2,000,000,000 to spend today. What can I get?
My own private jet, a luxury ocean front home, a summer home in the mountains, a Porsche-Lamborghini-Range Rover, a condo in Vegas, and a yacht. Even after I buy all of that, there is still a few million left. Guess I’ll make a donation to my favorite charity. Wait a minute….What am I thinking about? Why don’t I go out and buy one of the worst sports franchises ever? That makes more sense. The LA Clippers, for years and years have been the laughing stock of the NBA and they are up for sale. The down trodden Milwaukee Bucks were just sold for $550 million so the pitiful Clippers have to be worth at least 4 times that! OK, I have made up my mind. I am worth $20 billion, what is the big deal if I drop a paltry $2 billion on the Clippers??
Really, seriously, that much for the Clippers? We are not talking about the NY Yankees. We are not talking about the Boston Red Sox, or the Dallas Cowboys, or the LA Lakers, or the Boston Celtics, or the Montreal Canadians. We are talking about the freaking LA Clippers! The Donald ( Sterling, not Trump ) has bled the LA market for years to make himself filthy rich and has NEVER produced a winner. Out with the Sterling’s and in with the Ballmer’s. Guess who is going to pay Mr. Ballmer back on his $2 Bill? If you guessed Joe Q. Public you would be right!! Do you think that other team in LA is going to roll over and play dead? Mark Cuban has mucho dinero and isn’t going away anytime soon. Golden State is on the rise, OKC is young and hungry, San Antonio is….San Antonio and as long as Popp stays there they will always be a force. Good luck Mr. Ballmer, you are going to need it!
Staying with the NBA, glad to see Lance Stephenson out of the playoffs. I hate it for the great folks in Indiana but his antics are too much of a distraction. Blowing in LeBron’s ear – how middle school. Wish he would have done that to anyone of the “Bad Boy’s” in Detroit! Bill or Rick would have pulled his lips off and stuffed them down his punk throat! What if he did that to Larry Legend? The next time Lancey drove down the lane in Beantown, the Chief or Kevin would have given him a face full of elbows and bounced his head off of the floor! Lancey is a free agent, maybe Stevie and his deep pockets will bring him to LA!
Speaking of losers, it was nice to see the Dallas Cowboys draft a QB and prepare for their future. Wait a minute, wrong team. I meant great job by the New England Patriots. Tom Terrific is nearing 37 years young and they currently have a solid backup in Ryan Mallet ( potential free agent after this year ). So what does a real champion do? They draft a potential replacement for the living legend and hope he has 2-3 years to groom his eventual replacement – Jimmy Garoppolo. Great move, great planning! On the other hand, Jerry – Owner – GM – Coach Jones has a mediocre, often injured, non producing QB in Tony Romo. He could have gotten his replacement and drafted the electric Johnny Football. Nope, I’ll pass on Manziel and stay with my 8-8 annual QB. The Dallas Cowboys – America’s Team….of MEDIOCRITY!
Hey, it’s not even June yet and the Red Sox and the Rays are battling it out like it’s September! Gotta love it! The BoSox lose 10 straight and have now won 5 in a row. They may not have last years talent but they will not back down from anyone. If they make 1 mid season move to acquire 1 more bat in that lineup, lookout! If they get healthy watch out. Baseball…if…if…if
