For those of you who are unfamiliar with the sports world and just wanted to see a rich white dude embarrassing himself by dancing to Fergie in public, Steve Ballmer was the CEO of Microsoft from 2000-2014 and bought the Los Angeles Clippers for a staggering $2 billion last year. The NBA has had its fair share of characters in the owners club, like Mark Cuban and infamously racist former Clippers owner Donald Sterling, but I’ve never seen an NBA owner throw down dance moves in the same stratosphere as Steve’s.
Man, he is really feeling that Fergie Ferg jam. If you play the video without sound, it looks like he’s speaking in tongues at some freaky religious convention. There’s more incredible footage of Steve getting weird in his courtside seat from a different angle below.
Look at the way he seamlessly incorporates those little leg kicks. This is clearly not the first time Steve has showcased this killer routine, as evidenced by the fact that his boy is somehow doing the exact same dance right next to him like they choreographed the whole thing together pre-game. This is the kind of shit you can get away with when you have “fuck you” money. Flailing your arms around like a deranged orangutan in pleated khakis because your team is pounding the Lakers is a serious power move. I could easily see this thing dethroning The Shmoney Dance and becoming the hottest dance move in the hip-hop world. I know I’ll be doing it next time I’m out on the town, and will probably drown in pussy as a result.
Good on you, Steve. Keep dancing like no one is watching. .
