The Spalding NBA Official Game Basketball has been the official game ball of the NBA since 1983. This indoor basketball features a full-grain leather cover that provides exceptional feel and touch, setting the standard for ultimate performance and playability.
The basketball is made with select genuine Harroween leather cover, which allows for superior grip and feel that gets even better as the ball is continuously played with. This ball may feel slick at first, so it may be required to break in your basketball (simply done best by playing with the ball as much as possible).
Official game ball specs include a 29.5-inch circumference, a 9.4-inch diameter, and a 4.7-inch radius.
Each NBA game ball sports the official NBA logo, David Stern commissioner signature, and is colored a distinctive NBA-heritage orange tone.
From the beginning it was all about being first, being the best… being what others could only aspire to become. Established by Boston Red Stockings pitcher A.G. Spalding in 1876, Spalding has long been a leader of innovation and quality in the sporting goods category. From the development of the very first basketball to the latest in NeverFlat® technology, Spalding's tradition of innovation continues.
