There were multiple bids on the team and Balmer's was obviously the highest. What your simple mind can't grasp is that the multiple bids happened AFTER Shelly decided to sell.
Unlike you, people with actual business experience understand the OBVIOUS that most things in deals like this happen behind closed doors. If you honestly believe that Steve Ballmer happened to see on the news that Shelley was considering selling and then he decided to call her up with an offer.... You're a fool of the highest order. Anyone with the slightest common sense understands that he obviously got in there the second he heard that Silver wanted Sterling out. Wouldntt be shocked if he wasn't in the know about having Donald declared incompetent in order to get the deal through.

Multiple bids were submitted at the same time. Shelly put the team up for sale, several people bid on it and Balmers was the highest. People wouldn't have submitted bids if Shelly hadn't decided to sell. And they certainly wouldn't have bid on it if Balmer had already said he would pay 2 billion.

She initially said she had no intention of selling so why would teams be submitting bids before june 3?

The NBA announced Sterling's ban in April. Then a month later several potential buyers decided to submit bids simultaneously?
