Clippers owner Steve Ballmer gets fired up over unique toilet situation at new arena
The Los Angeles Clippers will soon no longer share a stadium with the Los Angeles Lakers, as the Intuit Dome continues to be built in Inglewood, Calif.
Billionaire Clippers owner Steve Ballmer, the former CEO of Microsoft, spoke at the construction site on Monday, and well, he was a little hyped about one particular aspect of the stadium that is unique compared to others.
“1,160 toilets and urinals!!” Ballmer shouted to the crowd, via TMZ Sports. “Three times the NBA average number of toilets and urinals. We don’t want people waiting in line. We want them back in their dirty seats at the end of the half, before the game.”

Ballmer was surrounded by a handful of Clippers as he gave his speech, including star forwards Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, as well as point guard Russell Westbrook.
The Clippers moved into the then-Staples Center with the Lakers in 1999, although they have been in Angeles City since 1984.

It’s no shock to anyone that Ballmer was so hyped when he gave his speech. His intense energy can be found on and off the court since he bought the Clippers from disgraced owner Donald Sterling in 2014 for $2 billion.
Ballmer has been brutal during games, as cameras have caught him screaming his head off during playoff games. But that’s why Clippers fans, and NBA fans in general, love what Ballmer has brought to the game.

You can be sure his new arena will continue to put a smile on his face, as will the Clippers with their current playoff spot in the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference.
The Clippers could make a push in the standings, as the West is so close record-wise.
