What would it be like if Oprah bought the Clippers?
In light of NBA commissioner Adam Silver’s announcement that he will "urge the board of governors to exercise its authority to force the sale" of the Clippers, rumors are swirling about potential owners.
One person who is considering a bid on the team is Oprah Winfrey.
Reports say the talk show legend would team with media mogul David Geffen and Oracle chief executive officer Larry Ellison to purchase the club.
Naturally, people on Twitter had a lot of fun with the news early Wednesday afternoon, with "If Oprah" trending for a period of time.

I for one would love if Oprah was a co-owner of the #Clippers: You get a max contract! And you get a max contract!
