Paul George

"Not to make an excuse or anything, it's just a different basketball. It doesn't have the same touch or softness as the Spalding ball had. You'll see this year, there's going to be a lot of bad misses," stated PG, who is obviously not very happy with it.

Joel Embiid

Joel Embiid also joined the against list. He said, "I am always looking for excuses but the ball feels different. Still don't feel comfortable with it...Last year, I was the best mid-range shooter in the league. So at some point, it's going to come back." Embiid even lost the ball during a play and always smacked Lonzo Ball because of it.

Devin Booker

"I don't want to make any excuses but, it's definitely an adjustment. I think the thing with the Wilson ball: Each one feels a little different... They all feel like they have a little different feel to it," explained Devin Booker. Is nobody liking this Ball or what?

CJ McCollum

With almost everyone speaking against it, McCollum stepped out of the herd and did not blame the new Wilson ball for missing shots. "It's the shooter's fault. For the record," he stated.

Kevin Durant

Kevin Durant couldn't care less. He couldn't feel anything different at all. For a man focused on getting the Brooklyn Nets ahead, seems about right. Isn't it?
