Steve Ballmer suits up in Clippers uniform for magazine cover

NBA Season Preview: Los Angeles Clippers

​The cover of the newest Bloomberg Businessweek magazine has a great pun and an even better photograph of new Los Angeles Clippers owner Steve Ballmer.

Ballmer agreed to suit up in the team's uniform for the photo shoot, although the magazine explains how its original plan involved a trampoline and some acrobatic action shots. The end product still gives the owner the illusion of speed courtesy of Photoshopped motion blur.

The accompanying article details Ballmer's path to becoming a team owner, including his earlier near miss at purchasing the Milwaukee Bucks.
