LOS ANGELES, March 1 (UPI) -- Not even a polo shirt and slacks could hold back 59-year-old billionaire Steve Ballmer from dunking Monday at halftime of the Los Angeles Clippers game.

Ballmer, the team's owner, threw down the slam after introducing Clippers fans to mascot "Chuck the California Condor." After the introduction, Ballmer told fans that they would earn a free pair of Converse sneakers if he could dunk.

Ballmer proceeded to sprint toward the rim, before jumping on a small trampoline, and bouncing up to throw it down.

Memphis Grizzlies owner Robert Pera responded to Ballmer's dunk by posting a video of his own, sans trampoline.

The Clippers edged the Brooklyn Nets 105-95 in the game.
