    It seems Steve Ballmer is following in the maverick mold of Jack Kent Cooke, leaving the downtown area in favor of his own new arena in Inglewood. This time around, it certainly doesn’t hurt to have the Rams/Chargers stadium nearby, along with all the other amenities going into the former Hollywood Park site. Poor Jeannie Buss….she’ll really have to scramble to match the financial clout of her cross-town rival.
