Brooklyn has some advice for Steve Ballmer.

The Los Angeles Clippers have always been seen as Los Angeles' "little brother" professional basketball team. With the success of the Los Angeles Lakers before the Clippers even moved to Los Angeles from San Diego, combined with how horrible the majority of Clippers teams were until acquiring Chris Paul in 2011, this was somewhat unavoidable.
