I want the clippers the best the clippers can be.

The best team, the best players, the best character, the best coaching staff, the best business.

I want all of that for the clippers.

That just means we're going to have to be hard-core about working to be better, tenacious, more and more excellent in everything we do.

Steve ballmer promising to be hard-core, you know he is going to be a hands-on manager.
