A regulation basketball is usually half the size in diameter of the basket. It has a circumference of thirty inches, and a diameter of nine inches. The ball is inflated to around 8 lbs. of air pressure.
There are three different types of basketballs:
1. Leather: 100% genuine leather cover. As the ball
is exposed to use, it becomes soft, with an appealing broken-in feel.
Due to the nature of the leather, these basketballs are recommended
for indoor use only. They are also the most expensive of the three.
Basketballs come with two kinds of channeling;
wide and narrow. Wide channels mean better control of the ball, as well
as better grip. The choice is based on individual preference.
