Default The rumor about the Jazz pumping air into balls

Is there any truth to it?

I'm pretty sure it's the elevation. Denver has the same issue, though I don't ever hear it being used as an excuse.

Are you tellin' me you don't play any ball?
Anyone who does knows what an over-inflated ball feels like to play with
also knows what it looks like as far as the balls reactions. Like I said above, Climate has a lot to do with it.

nah i know u can feel it, its obivous wen u play with it.. but its not as ez to tell if ball is overinflated wen others play with it. it cud be stiff/not stiff rims or dead spots in floor that cause weird ball reactions. and some players just dribble harder

The whole thing with "too much air in the balls" was just stuipd. It makes no sense at all. It would make your own players at a disadvantage on the road as they are used to non standard inflation. Also, the jazz had nearly no post game most of the season and had a hard time hitting layups anyways. A lot of the accusations were just from a disgruntled player who sucked anyway.
