    Does Bill Walton pay someone so he can be an announcer? I would prefer Daffy Duck or Elmer Fudd.

    The ongoing feud between Clipper owner Steve Ballmer and the Madison Square Garden group has reached the point where the Forum will be sold to Mr. Ballz. The lawsuits between these two entities has already run into the tens of millions, and this sale indicates the New York group is waving the white flag. So Ballmer’s basketball palace will be built in Inglewood, either on the plot of the old Forum, or more likely, in the new football complex. That Microsoft money is really something.
