New Spalding NBA Official Game Basketball

New Spalding NBA Official Game Basketball

If you haven't heard, the NBA has announced a new game ball that will be used beginning in the 2006-07 season. This is the first time they've changed balls in over 35 years and only the second time in 60 seasons. So it's kind of a big deal. The New Spalding NBA Official Game Basketball ($100; Oct.) features Cross Traxxion technology, which combines a microfiber composite covering and two interlocking, cross-shaped panels (rather than the eight oblong ones) for better grip and feel than the current leather ball.

  • All-Weather Foosball Table

    Design Within Reach just added this hellacious All-Weather Foosball Table ($4000) to its collection of premium priced home goods. Combining ruggedness and elegance, the stainless steel table has 6mm aluminum players and was designed for either indoor or outdoor use and won't corrode in any weather condition — not even when you unleash the beer shower celebration after you win the loser-shaves-his-eyebrows tournament.
