It has an American ABA look to it, and I would half expect to see long socks and afros getting ready to rebound as the ball flashes colours in it's rotation.

That being said, I thought the colour of the Molten would be a distraction when that came out too.

It reminds me quite a lot of the Molten actually...

I've spoken to some guys from the Hawks. Apparently all the clubs were sent out 2 versions of the new ball for evaluation. One was a more expensive leather, the other a cheap shitty synthetic. The Hawks guys were unanimous in their preference for the more expensive ball. Guess which one the NBL has decided to go with?

Does it have "2010-2011 Champions" on the reverse?

It has a picture of McPeake's head, it takes up the entire other half of the ball.

I dont care what type of ball they use so long as the players like them and they contribute towards skilfull competetive basketball. I would like to see a pattern that is distinctly NBL though. The current NBL ball helped to identify the league with its yellow striping. I'm not suggesting we go to the old ABA red white and blue though !
As opposed to every other non-US league that used the same Molten 'hot cross bun' ball?

You missed post #15?

You nailed it with the "hot cross bun" analogy though.

I'll probably have to wait for the Easter long weekend before anyone gets that one.
