i dont understand why they would switch mid season. Players worked all off season with this ball, now they have to adjust mid season.

I think it should have been done for next year.

If you all remember, the players union went on the attack... Stern backed down.. which was the right thing to do and also means the players union's argument had merits.

I don't think it will be a problem, just like the new ball wasn't really a that big of a problem. I am surprised that they aren't going to wait, but they are NBA players, they should be fine.

Be interesting to see what happens to turnovers across the league.

Stephen A Smith made a good point. Stern gives the players the ball. He now hs fans/players talkin about that and overlookin the fact he doesnt CARE about giving in to the ball issue. What he wont give in is the refs slapping players quickly for verbal harrassment during a game. THAT is what he cares about and he will fight tooth and nail to keep that rule in effect and enforced.

So while everyone screaming YIPPEE for the new ball, that is the least of the problems. Stern threw u a bone and you're happy but you ignore the crappy yard you play in.

Stern wins again.

They pulled it quicker than New Coke.

New Coke > Micro Fiber Ball

No more crazy shooters bounces.

I'm more excited because the nets will swoosh like they are supposed to now.

Agreed....the quick T's are pretty much a thing of the past now anyway. Players don't complain as much, and when they do, they don't have a crybaby fit in the middle of court.

You can bet that the ONLY reason they are switching back is because of the cuts players are getting. In the end it's just a ball and any effect on gameplay itself is minimal at best. I wouldn't be surprised if Spalding addresses the cutting issue and the new ball(an improved version) is back as soon as next season.
