    the aerodynamics will not be the same since it has airholes. many shooters will hate it specially advanced shooters who are used to "spin" on the ball

    • Weltschmerz ist oft häufig…
      Weltschmerz ist oft häufig… 6 days ago +19

      Nope; it has a mesh structure, which wouldn't affect the spin or bounce of the ball.

    • mary mae patalinghug
      mary mae patalinghug 6 days ago +41

      @Weltschmerz ist oft häufig… the spin through the "air" would not be a 1 to 1. hence the term aerodynamics.

      Fun fact - China banned child labor in 1991 because we asked them to. By comparison the province I live in here in Canada allows child labor for certain industries like farming. In China the age of work is 16 here it's only 14. So technically they're doing better than Canada on the issue.

  • Sean's Customs
    Sean's Customs Month ago +29

    I doubt it feels the same, there's a reason we can't have air-less tires on the street. Air distributes the pressure evenly throughout the inside of the ball, this ball would only bounce because of deformation. So basically it wouldn't feel the same and while it does still bounce I 100% doubt it feels the same.

    • Jamie Bootay
      Jamie Bootay 10 days ago +3

      You're exactly right. It doesn't bounce the exact same as the official nba game ball

    • Sean's Customs
      Sean's Customs 10 days ago

      @Jamie Bootay And it never will, I see a giant flop. Or maybe it will be like how they promised us airless tires years ago, then they realized that air is kinda important, but they still decided to make them for atv's because they're on rough terrain anyway. Maybe they'll make these and some people will use them, but it will never replace the basketballs in the NBA

    • Weltschmerz ist oft häufig…

      This ball's 3D geometric structure will allow for the same bounce as a standard NBA basketball. I recommend you do more research before concluding how effective the ball would be.

    If you've ever played a sport that involves a ball. Rugby, basketball, cricket, baseball etc sometimes those differences in the ball due to it being handmade can show huge differences in how the ball reacts, sometimes good sometimes bad but it's up to the player's skill to adjust

  • Zachary Jeffares

    The main problem I see with the ball is how it interacts with surfaces over time (friction - inducing the grip on the ball for dribbling and shooting along with hitting the rim, etc) and spin (it’s hollow so it will fly differently than a regular basketball)

      @JedisRc00l I think what he's trying to say is that air passes through all of the holes in the ball, so the drag is different from a traditional basketball as it flies through the air.

      It’s a valid concern but if the NBA adopted the ball the players would get used to it as they would use the same type of ball every game.

      So...my first thought was also about the aerodynamics. I instantly went to thoughts of wiffle balls curving when pitched.

    • Trenton Staggs
      Trenton Staggs Month ago +5

      The openings are so small, the air resistance is pretty negligible, as far as curving it. But with the right amount of spin, you could curve it pretty good. Although it might not be as dramatic as you think, because of the uniformness and spacing of the holes.

    Its travel rate has to be different since the air moves through it. Could also cause a different rotation than the traditional ball.

      Realistically, everyone will see this, then they’ll say it’s too weird, too different, or causes problems with how they play (even if it doesn’t). So no one will buy it, Wilson will decide to manufacture basketballs the traditional way to keep from becoming bankrupt, and it’ll all have been one interesting but very short-lived experiment. 😭

      Probably not unexpected, but probably slightly different than how inflated balls currently travel.
      Likely the only noticeable different would be during hard and long passes, I don't think there would be much difference when it comes to a simple jumpshot

    • Drake Oola
      Drake Oola Month ago +27

      That was my immediate thought seeing it too, the aerodynamics are gonna be way different to the point it puts pro-ballers at a massive disadvantage so I can't see them ever adopting the new style. If they somehow do manage to make it new regulation then there's always going to be tons of complaints in pro games from the losing side...
      They'll start claiming the new ball bounced or flew differently and cost them the game. No matter which side loses they'll use the new balls as an excuse to demand a rematch claiming they would've won if it was a regular one so I imagine it's not gonna last long before it's banned from all the complaints, if it even somehow gets adopted in the first place...
