The best ball I've ever used was the Spalding Top Flite 1000 (our high school used it as our game ball). It was the softest leather ever. I liked it better than NBA game balls. But I haven't been able to find it since.
But speaking of ball costs, they say the average life span of an MLB baseball is 7 pitches. Considering each team throws approx. 150 pitches per game, that's a total of 40-45 baseballs lost each game. At $10 each, we're looking at up to $450 per game.
The NBA game ball costs about $100 each. I'm sure the league could afford to lose a ball every once in a while, and still come out on top compared to MLB

We only have a game remaining, but we could still finish anywhere from 4th to 8th!
Bottom 3: CHA, WAS, NOH
21 win teams: SAC CLE (one or the other, or both could tie us at 22 if we lose)
22 win teams: Raps & NJN (facing off ... so that tie will be broken)
23 wins: Golden state
Likely scenario? I dunno, I feel like we'll beat the Nets during our final home game ... maybe end up 7th ... eesh.
The only way to bag a classy lady is to give her two tickets to the gun show... and see if she likes the goods.
I could see SAC beating the Lakers as well. Sacramento are respectable at home at 15-17.
Cleveland play Washington tonight.
So, in a nutshell, I could see a multi team tie with 22 wins and 3rd worst. Who knows. We'll all know in about 57 hours.
