Well it's completely possible that a BB30 shell can become worn enough to develop some play. King has an article about why integrated headsets are such a bad idea, and the same basically applies with any integrated BB system, be it BB30, BB86, etc. I think King's claims of headset wear are a little excessive for the majority of riders, but I can defiantly see this being a problem with bottom brackets, which take much more force and are more prone to the ingress of contaminates. I've seen worn external cups develop some play, whether that is the issue or not with yours I have no idea, but I don't doubt it could be a possibility, though if it is I'd doubt it would be covered under warranty as they would likely claim it was a maintenance issue and not a manufacturing defect.
