Players participating at the Eurobasket disagree with the new basketball used by FIBA

Aug 30, 2017

In statement sent yesterday by the national team captains to FIBA President Horacio Muratore, players are complaining about the choice made by FIBA to change the type of Molten basketballs that are used in competition.

Players are asking that the "consistent touch" feature be phased out immediately after this competition and that active players be included in the process for selecting new ball since it's an issue that directly affects their performances on the court.
