Watch: Grizzlies owner tries to show up Clippers owner with dunk

Wednesday March 2nd, 2016

On Monday night, Clippers owner Steve Baller hopped off a trampoline to land an arena-shaking jam. Everything was coming up Ballmer, until a challenger emerged: Grizzlies owner Robert Pera.

Pera, who is not shy about showcasing his ability to play basketball, tried to show up Ballmer and put this contest to sleep. 

I’m not so sure that he wins, though. Let’s take a look at Ballmer in slow-motion.

Pera didn’t show us any footage of what happened after the dunk, or how many tries it took him. Ballmer, meanwhile, soared in front of thousands of fans, under a literal spotlight, and absolutely crushed it.

Game, Ballmer.
