Bottom line is: never use it outdoors, which is also true for the TF1000; don't expect anyone to want to use it for the "game" ball. Just get it if you love basketball, and appreciate the feel of it and how sounds as it drains in, or how it bounces off the rim. You won't wear it out. And I hope mine eventually breaks in to the point it will be used as "game" ball and if that happens I'll submit another review. Meanwhile. I'm glad I got my NBA leather ball. But I'm admitting that I am truly a basketball nut, so you gotta just decide for yourself if getting this ball is for you. I hope you found this helpful.
I read some of the reviews and I respect the opinions. I have to disagree with the negative reviews though. You must not know what a leather ball should be like is all I can say. I even thought, based on the reviews, that when I got a new one I wouldn't like it until I broke it in. Not true at all. I love it! I feels just like I remember leather balls should feel like. The best thing is, it will only get better with use! I love that it gets more grippy when it get's wet. I love the way it feels and feel like I could make every shot with it. I don't have the biggest hands and I remember being able to palm basketballs in highshool as they got more moister. I can do the same thing with this one right out of the box. I can't imagine anyone not liking this ball. I could not be any happier with my purchase!
I watched Youtube videos of each of of these balls being manufactured--really very interesting to me. The football (The Duke) is made in the USA by Wilson. Rawlings makes the baseball in Costa Rica. When I watched the video purporting to depict the Spalding basketball being made, everyone in the video was American. When I saw this basketball was made in China, I was off-put! Only later did I realize that the Spalding video showed Americans TESTING the balls, not manufacturing them.
Spalding moved its manufacturing to China a few years ago. They still use Horween Leather that is made here in America.
I ordered my basketball Monday via Amazon Prime, and it arrived yesterday (Wed.) afternoon.
It is fully inflated, and carries David Stern’s signature. It smells great, and did not have nearly as slick of finish on it as I had expected after reading many of these reviews. The “fit and finish” seemed very well done to me.
I took it to the gym and put it through its paces, and just really enjoyed myself as I played with the real deal.
Now I’ve got the official game ball of three major American sports and am exceptionally pleased because I think the genuine article is quite a bit better than the imitations.
