Wash Your Balls

Mark Cuban's got a fresh posting over at BlogMaverick concerning the new NBA balls, and we don't mean rookies. Looks like he had the University of Texas at Arlington physics folks look at both the new and old basketballs to see which one was better. Cuban has his own thoughts on the subject of ditching the eight-panel leather ball that worked out just fine for 36 years--"We need to find a way to keep the balls clean," which is just plain ol' good advice in your everyday life, fellas--but he wanted some Department of Physics input here, if only so he could say, "It's science" in his best Ron Burgundy voice. --Robert Wilonsky
