yes! different basketballs affect your shoot because of the texture,brand,and how much air the ball has.sometimes it has to do witht the weather like if it rains or snows then the rim will be wet or frozen.

Height does not have near the effect on Basketball shots that bulk does. People such as Kevin Garnett, Dirk Nowitzki, and Yao Ming have good mid to long range shooting ability. They all have very lean bodies which means they haven't had to adjust their shot due to extra bulk. Players like Dwight Howard or Shaquille O'Neal struggle mainly because they have so much muscle they have to constantly adjust their shots.

Certainly the weight of the ball also affects it because you know im the best basketball player in my class and i use a heavy ball so............i missed almost every time.So yes the size and weight affects your shot.

For my school science fair project, Does the size of the basketball affect the number of free throws I make was my question. My results were that it didn't, because when I tested a mini ball, a girls' ball and a pro ball, I got around 50% each time.
