Owner's Activist Wife Responsible for Orange Roundie?
Interesting bullet over at foxsports rumors section.
According to talk show host Joe McDonnell of AM 570 KLAC in Los Angeles, Houston Rockets owner Leslie Alexander's wife (who is an animal rights activist) was able to get her good friend, Mrs. David Stern, to convince the commissioner to drop the leather ball in favor of the synthetic.
That's all well and good, but it still doesn't explain who was responsible for allowing Scoop Jackson to pretend he was the new ball in his recent column. Although, we must admit: If Scoop were a ball, he'd gain some IQ points.
