Clippers Owner Steve Ballmer Goes Full Ballmer While Cheering Team in Preseason

Steve Ballmer is an unabashed crazy person, and I mean that in the most complimentary sense. 

The Los Angeles Clippers owner assumed his role of lead screamer during Wednesday night’s preseason game against the Phoenix Suns. To say he was turned up would not do it justice, as he spent the majority of the game roaring and resisting the urge to run onto the court for high fives.

Business Insider's Cork Gaines uploaded a Vine of Ballmer’s red-faced howling. This is what it looks like right before someone’s head explodes: 

It bears repeating that this was a preseason game. Where most owners would yawn through these glorified scrimmages, Ballmer screamed like he was flying a Harrier into the maw of the mothership.

So consider the tone good and set for the Clippers’ 2014-15 season. It started with his wild exhibition during the Clippers Fan Festival in September, wherein the former Microsoft CEO walked out of the tunnel to “Lose Yourself” and screamed “Boom, baby!” to the crowd.

This is just the beginning, Clippers fans. If your players can muster a quarter of Ballmer’s craziness, it’s going to be an interesting season.
