Clippers owner Steve Ballmer gets fired up over unique toilet situation at new arena
The Los Angeles Clippers won’t be sharing a stadium with the Los Angeles Lakers anytime soon as the Intuit Dome in Inglewood, California is still under construction.
Billionaire Clippers owner Steve Ballmer, the former CEO of Microsoft, was speaking at the construction site on Monday and he was a little hyped about a certain aspect of the stadium that is unique compared to others.
“1,160 toilets and urinals!!” Ballmer yelled to the audience 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 damn seats at the end of the half, before the game.”

Ballmer was surrounded by some Clippers during his speech, including star forwards Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, as well as point guard Russell Westbrook.
The Clippers moved with the Lakers to what was then the Staples Center in 1999, although they have been in the City of Angels since 1984.

It’s no shock to anyone that Ballmer was very hyped during his speech. His intense energy can be found on and off the field since he bought the Clippers in 2014 for a reported $2 billion from disgraced owner Donald Sterling.
Ballmer was raw during games, as cameras have caught him screaming his head off during playoff matchups. But that’s why Clippers fans, and NBA fans in general, love what Ballmer brought to the sport.
