The switch away from iPads to Windows-based tablets could be an opportunity for Microsoft’s Surface tablets to make an impact at the NBA alongside the NFL, but Samsung will stand in the way of seeing any Microsoft tablets courtside. Samsung signed a $100 million deal to become the official handset, tablet, and TV supplier for the NBA late last year. That won’t stop Ballmer from switching behind the scenes, but he might be forced to stick with Android-powered Galaxy tablets elsewhere.

Yeah in football you see nothing but Surface. Too bad, iPads are fun!
