Basketball is one of the most popular sports in the world that increases in popularity with every passing year and every rising star. But whether you’re a backyard baller or an NBA superstar, you know that you can only play the sport with its namesake, the basketball itself. Though the equipment never makes the player, a basketball has to be of high quality and offer the right amount of bounce, grip, and overall hand feel. If you want to perform graceful layups, flawless free throws, and gravity-defying slam-dunks, you need a ball that’s up to the task. Not all basketballs are created equal, as there are many styles, conditions, and levels of play that dictate various necessity. For outdoor street balling there are tougher, smoother, and bouncier balls to meet the demands of outdoor court play. For wood court indoor play, whether high school, college, or NBA, there are leather balls with the perfect levels of feel, grip, and bounce for traditional indoor basketball.
