I personally don't think the new NBA ball is all that bad, to be honest. I can see why some players complain, but it looks like it's been helping the NBA more than it hasn't. Remember when Carter's three hit the back rim and went in the net a while back, to send the game into overtime? It would've bounced away somewhere else if it were the leather ball.
