"For you, sir," Steven Ballmer said.

"That's a nice logo," Conan said.

Team owner Steve Ballmer unveiled the new logo and gear on "Conan" Wednesday night.

And a lot of people weren't a fan of the new look, but this design really shouldn't come as a shock.

The same logo was leaked in April, and it got similar "bleh" reactions back then.

But the Clippers kinda had to adopt a new design to distance themselves from the past.

"Let's face facts. Look at the history of the Clippers, it's not a happy history. The people want a new Clippers. They want a happy ending to this story," Steve Ballmer said.

Ballmer bought the Clippers in 2014 after racist recordings of the team's former owner, Donald Sterling, surfaced.

So the logo, even though it might not be gorgeous, symbolizes a new era for the team.

Hey, it could have been a lot worse. Right?

"Ladies and gentlemen, the Las Angeles Clippers. Boom!" Steve Balmer said in a "Funny or Die" video.
