Steve Ballmer will take away from their basketball players iPad and replace them with tablets on Windows

New NBA "Los Angeles Clippers" Steve Ballmer has demanded that all the players and staff of the club got rid of the electronic devices made by Apple. This was the former CEO of Microsoft said in an interview with Reuters.

"Most of the players are devices on Windows, but some of the players and coaches - no. Doc Rivers knows what I plan to do it. The first thing he said to me: "We will probably have to get rid of all the iPad, yes?" And I said, "Yeah, probably." But I promised that we would do, but not during the World Cup "- quoted Ballmer The Sporting News.
In August of this year, Steve Ballmer left the board of directors of Microsoft . He left the post of general director of the corporation in 2013, but remained on the board. Ballmer was appointed CEO in 2000 and finally led Microsoft in 2009. In company he came in June 1980 at the invitation of its founder, Bill Gates, with whom they studied at Harvard University. In the Forbes list of billionaires, he held 51 th place, his personal fortune in 2013 was estimated at $ 15.2 billion.
Ballmer acquired "Clippers" the businessman Donald Sterling for $ 2 billion. Sterling himself was forced to sell the club because of the scandal with racist remarks. NBA also disqualified for life Sterling and fined $ 2.5 million.
Most likely, the basketball players will not be able to use Windows-gadgets either directly before matches or after matches: in the past year, Samsung has signed a $ 100 million contract with the NBA, becoming the official supplier of smartphones, tablets, and televisions for the association. This means that players will have to use the plates of the Galaxy line when there are "behind the scenes".
