Best Answer

The inside diameter of a regulation rim is 18 inches. A regulation NBA Basketball is between 29 1/2 to 29 7/8 inches in circumference, equating to a diameter of 9.39 to 9.51 inches, or an average of 9.45 inches. Now is where simple math will tell you that they won't fit, but both are able to compress over 1/2 inch each with minimal force, leaving you with a tightly fitting yet extremely possible attempt at making two basketballs at the same time. Conversely, you can take two basketballs placed side by side and place them on the top cylinder of the rim and make them not go through.
