Default Re: "Breaking in" a basketball?

New balls are sometimes slippery and hard to grip throwing off your handles and your shot. It just means wearing it down to the point where it's easier to control. It's like having a new pair of shoes: they're crispy and stiff at first, but after a while of wearing them they start to mold to the shape of your feet more.
