Re: Not involved in Microsoft?

I could understand wanting his family to be seen using Microsoft products when he's their CEO. But he doesn't work for Microsoft anymore, and while he's a huge shareholder ($15 billion or so) it isn't like forcing the Clippers to use or not use Surface will move the needle on Microsoft's stock price, or that he has any reason to care if he's got $15 billion or $15.1 billion of MSFT stock unless he's hoping to buy a team for cash in every sports league from Pee Wee football to UEFA.
