As we noticed in the presentation of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, Clippers’ owner Steve Ballmer is quite an energetic man with a love of the game. Now, it appears that Ballmer is possibly looking at making some major changes to the team, mainly off the court.
Now that the team is in a better position to win, Ballmer has revealed that the Clippers will be moving into a new arena in Inglewood in 2024. This would mean the team would leave the Staples Center behind, which could be a positive since they share the arena with the more popular Lakers. In a recent interview with the LA Times, Ballmer said how it wouldn’t be out of the question for the organization to change their name entirely.
“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.”
Considering the Clippers will make this move to Inglewood, changing the franchise’s name is not all out there.
