Los Angeles Clippers owner Steve Ballmer, a man whose unbridled levels of enthusiasm are simply unprecedented in our opinion, appeared on Late Night with Conan O'Brien last night to unveil his team's brand new logo.

“People want a new Clippers. They want a happy ending to this story,” explained the former Microsoft CEO of the logo change.

Now some 14 hours later, with the news being official and Clippers in full-on promotion mode, many people have taken to social media to share their thoughts on the logo, which, as you can imagine, is absolutely ripe for parody.

And, after much research, it seems that barely anybody has something nice to say about it.

LOL.

The Clippers are moving on their campaign trail unabated however, distributing new Clippers merchandise to students across Los Angeles, and even teaming up with Funny or Die for a video about the logo, starring Ballmer and Clippers star Blake Griffin.
