Steve Ballmer Wants Clippers To Ditch Apple Products For Microsoft (Video)

Steve Ballmer doesn’t want any Apple products around while he’s the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers.

The former Microsoft CEO is still the largest individual shareholder in the company, and he told Reuters that he’d like to see his basketball team start using Microsoft products in favor of those of his old foes.

“Most of the Clippers are on Windows, some of the players and coaches are not,” Ballmer said.

“And (coach) Doc (Rivers) kind of knows that?s a project. It’s one of the first things he said to me: ‘We are probably going to get rid of these iPads, aren?t we?’ And I said, ‘Yeah, we probably are.’ But I promised we would do it during the offseason.”

This doesn’t come as much of a surprise, as Reuters pointed out that Ballmer’s own family is barred from owning anything that has an Apple logo on it.
