Steve Ballmer, still dancing

When Steve Ballmer was chief executive of Microsoft, he was well known for his enthusiastic—if awkward—dancing at company events.

Retiring and buying a basketball team has not improved his sense of rhythm.

Ballmer became a viral hit on Thursday after ESPN writer Arash Markazi posted a Vine clip of the Los Angeles Clippers owner dancing to the singer Fergie at a basketball game.

In half a day, the video had already been watched more than 2.4 million times.
