Rookie Shabazz Napier is struggling with getting used to the NBA's leather basketball.
"My biggest thing is getting comfortable with that basketball," Napier said. "That's one of my biggest problems and it's kind of ironic, because it's a basketball. But it's different than a college basketball." There is a substantial difference between the balls used in the college game and the NBA, but you rarely hear of a player complaining about it. Napier will eventually get it figured out and we doubt it has much of an impact on his game, but it is likely part of the reason he struggled in Summer League. He'll get some run in Miami this season, but he still doesn't look like someone who should be targeted in standard leagues. Aug 26 - 1:26 AM
