The Spalding NBA Official Game Ball Basketball is the perfect Indoor Basketball. Ranked only behind the Wilson Evolution on our chart (and after much debate at that!), there really is nothing bad to say about this ball. Made of the finest full grain leather and meeting the NBA’s very strict size and weight standards, the Spalding NBA Official Game Ball Basketball is ideal for top-level competitive play. Spalding claim it’s even durable enough to withstand some outdoor play (from our experience don’t overdo it!). The Spalding NBA Official Game Ball Basketball is what the pros use for a reason- it’s made impeccably, and provides the best possible feel and ball handling experience. We here can’t possibly argue with a ball used by the likes of Kobe Bryant or Dwayne Wade- If the Spalding NBA Official Game Ball Basketball is good enough for them, it’s good enough for us.

Spalding NBA Official Game Ball Basketball Review 1) T. Jensen: “I just got this ball over Thanksgiving break. It still has plenty of hours left before it’s broken in, but right away it feels great to shoot with this ball. Most people agree when they play with my ball.”
Spalding NBA Official Game Ball Basketball Review 2) E. Novack: “My husband picked this ball for a Christmas gift along with several other “practical” things, thinking that there is no way I would buy him a $80 leather ball… I know nothing about basketball, but he plays it every single week and looks forward to it like a little kid. The ball he used prior to this one needed to be inflated every week because it was leaking air and was cheaply made. I didn’t have the heart not to get this for him, plus, I have to admit I was pretty excited to see his face when he unwrapped it and it wasn’t a sweater or a tool that would eventually get lost in our shed! Needless to say, this was a fantastic gift for a kid at heart, – my husband’s face lit up when he opened the bag and found this ball in it. This may sound a bit corny, but seeing such innocent and sincere surprise on his face truly brought the spirit of Christmas to my heart!”
Spalding NBA Official Game Ball Basketball Review 3) D.F: This is a great high quality basketball. Since it has a real leather cover it is strictly for indoor use. I own 8 basketballs from various manufacturers including Nike, Wilson, and Belden and this one is by far my favorite. My second favorite is the Wilson Jet game balls. I bought if on sale for $68 and am extremely satisfied.
