I actually thought New Coke was better.

Smart move by Stern. This was a no-brainer, but he could have turned stubborn and kept the new ball for the whole year. A lesson for the Godfather that he needs to consult with players before making a decision affecting the integrity of the game.

I don't think he'll cave on the tech situation, which will resolve itself in the end. With less player histrionics, the need to give out more techs will disappear.

As for the ball, I think they should have switched it back last year so there's no problem with adjusting mid-season, but in theory I love that they are reverting.

Default the league is getting rid of the new ball

"After more than two months of complaining by some of its biggest superstars and scores of other players, the NBA is giving the boot to its new microfiber composite basketball and bringing back the old leather ball that had been in use for 36 years."

Stern admitted that he was wrong. I wonder what else he's been wrong about.

There was a time when many high schools switched to this ball:



I've used it and the grip is so much better.
