Barring any hiccups the LA Clippers look set to be sold to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer in the coming days for around $2 billion per reports.

With the Donald Sterling looking to be coming to an end after a tumultuous past month or so fans of the Los Angeles franchise, and the NBA as a whole will be eager to see just who is set to replace the disgraced 81-year-old.

Well judging by this video, put together by Time Magazine, Ballmer will definitely bring passion to the role.

The hilarious compilation video puts together some of the business tycoon's career highlights, with the opening clip showing Ballmer skipping around the stage ahead of a keynote speech during his Microsoft.

And yes, the high pitch squeals and shrieks are coming from him.

The entire thing is a bizarre snapshot of a man who promises to be worth watching when he finally gains control of the NBA franchise.

You have to wonder too when watching the final clip in the video whether Leonardo DiCaprio took inspiration for Ballmer for his role in Wolf of Wall Street with the pure passion shown by the real-life billionaire invoking memories of the recent movie

Other highlights include his energetic, somewhat crazy, sales pitches as well as his starring roles alongside Microsoft founder Bill gates in various ad campaigns.

It will be interesting to see whether Griffin, CP3 and co will be able to perform with that distraction though!
