In September of 2021, the Los Angeles Clippers had a groundbreaking ceremony for the Intuit Dome, their new, $1.8 billion arena that is set to debut in the 2024-25 NBA season.

What we realized back then, is one thing that will be unlike any other NBA arena is due to Clippers owner Steve Ballmer’s new obsession – Toilets.


“I’ve become a real obsessive about toilets. Toilets, toilets, toilets.”


Intuit Dome will have one toilet for every 27 seats in the arena’s upper deck. an unmatched ratio in the NBA.

Now, one-and-a-half years later, Ballmer’s unprecedented hype for toilets is as strong as ever. During celebrations of the arena’s steel topping, the former Microsoft CEO spoke at the construction site on Monday and again was hyped about his restrooms.


“TOILETS! 1,160 toilets and urinals!! Three times the NBA average number of toilets and urinals. We do not want people waiting in line. We want them back to their damn seats at the end of the half, before the game.”

To be fair, it is pretty cool.
