Silver-Inscribed Basketballs Debut Today

Updated

on

In the first sign of a major change in the NBA landscape, new basketballs bearing the insignia of Adam Silver will debut for Saturday’s games. Commissioner David Stern serves his final day Friday in the league’s New York offices, retiring after 30 years, before Silver takes over.

According to NBA spokesman Tim Frank, teams were given the Silver-inscribed balls — fresh off the factory line – two months ago “to break in.” Teams have practiced with the new balls, but not until tomorrow — when they host the Heat on the eve of the Super Bowl — will the Knicks use them in a game.
