Is Kazan the only team that thinks this new yellow basketball is terrible?

I’m shooting 100% this season. At this rate, I’ll play with anything. Pass me a porcupine and I’ll knock it down.

Some of our players have had issues with the ball being hard to grip and slick. The leathers different on these new balls.

Honestly, there has been way too many complaints this season. There was major change in the league, switching to Thursday nights, having 3 games going on at once, having a new gym with new courts, new referees, etc. As a player in the league, I can only imagine all the trouble the commissioners go through every week and every season to keep this league competitive and fun for all the teams and players. Complaining about the basketball? I mean come on. They're brand new balls and they are only being used during game times, I assume they just need sometime to be broken in.

I want to take this time to thank all the commissioners for all the hard work they put in to keep this league running successfully. I know all you guys hear is complaints and so I want you guys to hear some appreciation for once, thank you for a great, fun, and competitive league.

Each ball has 15 games in and you think they still need to be broken in, c'mon now? The ball is garbage, just revert back to the regular basketball the league has always played with.

old ball since 2006 - https://www.wilson.com/e...volution-game-basketball
new ball since 2020 - https://www.wilson.com/e...n-game-ball-optic-yellow

balls were broken in more previous seasons because they were being used more per day
only 3 hours this season
7 hours last season

but we dont get new balls every season

but anyways, same exact ball - just added some flavor
