Since training camp opened this year for the NBA players have been complaining about the new microfiber composite basketball that David Stern demanded be the new basketball for the league. Well, after so many complaints and even proof the ball was causing injuries on stars such as Steve Nash and Jason Kidd the NBA has changed their mind. On January 1, 2007 the NBA will return to the old leather model. This situation stunk from jump and I’m really surprised Stern waited this long, but I’m sure he needed to look and act like he was in charge as long as possible. Will this help the NBA game overall though? I think this is the point they should be more focused on, but what the heck do I know!
