David Stern is a jackhole!

Okay, so last year I flipped out and said that David Stern was a genius when he finally listened to PETA's request that the NBA Switch to a synthetic ball. Evidently Stern's commitment to animal compassion only lasted a quarter of the season.

I had heard that several veteran players (you suck Steve Nash) were complaining about the new balls... not the young players though. In a recent interview, Brandon Roy said that all of the young guys liked the new ball, since they are used to it in the NCAA.

So disregard that the new ball looks cool, Starting Jan. 1st, the NBA will ditch the cruelty-free ball and switch back to using leather. Thanks Steve Nash and David Stern for giving me one more reason to loathe both Canada and the NBA respectively (and I was just starting to get back into the Blazers).
