wonder if it really will end up being accepted? According to the article it doesn't absorb water, but that's the only advantage over the old ball. It's actually slippier as the game goes on, it has lower bounce, and has unpredictable bounce characteristics.
I think we're gonna see more than a few airballs and botched drives to the hoop these first few months of the season.
