The National Basketball Association allows only one official ball: The ball must be the official NBA game ball manufactured by Spalding. The ball is orange in colour, 29.5 (749 mm) inches in circumference and weighs 22 ounces (624 g) (size 7). It must also be inflated to between 7.5 and 8.5 pounds per square inch.

29.5" is what the N.B.A. uses. the women use a 28.5"

29.5 inches is NOT the diameter of a standard basketball. It is the circumference. The circumference is the diameter multiplied by pi (approximately 3.14). The diameter would therefore be 29.5/3.14 which equals approximately 9.4 inches.
