    Does anyone remember if Carlisle was a big fan of small ball or does the NBA owe this change in its style to favoring small ball to Larry Brown's innovative coaching methods?

    By the way I have heard rumors that after the new ball is dribbled a few dozen times it actually shrinks in size so that Stern can palm it for international commericals. LOL

    Teams have been playing small ball for decades. Give LB credit for doing it the wrong way (playing Corliss at power forward).

    You are right, but I don't think it was the league mantra until the last couple of years.

    Yea, the "no touching" rule certainly has changed the NBA game.
