“Hopefully it’s all over, but we will be good,” Rivers told us. “We are ready to be good. It’s time for us to be good is the way I look at it.”

On Tuesday morning, it was announced that Steve Ballmer is officially the Clippers new owner. Attorney Adam Streisand said that the former Microsoft CEO’s  bid to purchase the Clippers closed “following weeks of legal wrangling between the team’s previous owner, billionaire Donald Sterling and his estranged wife, Shelly.”
