Steve Ballmer Is Open To Changing Name Of The Clippers

Los Angeles Clippers Introduce Kawhi Leonard & Paul George

In the last month, we have seen some big changes happen with the Los Angeles Clippers as they acquired Kawhi Leonard and Paul George on the same night. In the next few years, we might even see bigger changes coming.

Steve Ballmer told the Los Angeles Times, that he for sure wants the team to remain in Los Angeles, but he is very open to change everything else that includes the colors, logo, and even the "Clippers" name.

“Hopefully, by the time we’re done, it won’t be a Clipper logo,” Ballmer said. “It will be some naming rights sponsor.”
And Ballmer would not rule out changing the logo — and the colors, and perhaps even the nickname itself when the Clippers move into the new arena.
“We have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to really step our identity up another level,” he said. “I don’t anticipate making a change, but we have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and that is the kind of thing you somehow do in consultation with your fans.”

Last week, the Clippers announced funded arena in Inglewood to be open by 2024.
