Los Angeles Clippers owner Steve Ballmer says his team has a bigger target in mind than overcoming the legacy of the Los Angelese Lakers and becoming the city’s No. 1 basketball team. Ballmer, in an interview with Business Insider, said the Clippers have their sights set on the rest of the NBA, too.

“Our ultimate goal isn’t to beat one other team,” Ballmer told Business Insider. “It’s to beat 29 other teams. If you tell me you were the top team in L.A., but the 28th team in the league, I say to heck with that. “So in a sense, the best way to beat the Lakers is also to be the No. 1 team in the world, and that’s what we’re aspiring to do.”
