The Wolves and Bobcats will be the first teams to use the old leather ball this season.

"I still don't quite understand why they'd change it in midstream," Timberwolves assistant coach Randy Wittman said. "They could have played with this [synthetic] ball this year, then changed it for next year. You don't want to present yourself with a whole new set of problems."

"Rick [Davis] threw me the ball the other day and there was a big difference, from how it bounced to how it felt, to the seams," Garnett said. "I'll probably spend a lot of time with it. There are going to be a lot of guys sleeping with the leather ball."

Mike Rand/Star Tribune lists "the saga of Kevin Garnett" as one of the top 10 stories in Minnesota sports from the past year.
