In a statement sent yesterday by Eurobasket 2017 national team captains to FIBA President Horacio Muratore, players complained about the choice made by FIBA to change the type of Molten basketballs that are used in competition.

Players are asking that the “consistent touch” feature be phased out immediately after this competition and that active players be included in the process for selecting a new Molten ball since it’s an issue that directly affects their performance on the court.
