    Interesting article.

    It also found that the new ball bounces 30 percent more erratically.
    I am though perplexed as to what this means, and to what the definitive
    standard for "erratic" is, that they are making this comparison to.

    I'm certain David Stern will not find Cuban's research amusing.
    The best exercise of the human heart is reaching down and picking someone else up.

    I will always respect Cuban for going against Stern. It proves that he has some balls. On point, it's pretty obvious that the balls are different; everyone says so. But if they have to do studies to find out why prisoners want to escape from prison, then they're probably bound to do this if not as just a middle finger to Stern.
