rubber basketballs by far
Basketballs in the olden days were made of leather but then again they used soccer balls too!
No; only leather.
Basketballs are made using leather, composite leather or rubber as the covering. Rubber balls may be all rubber and can be used in water indoors and out. Leather and composite leather basketballs are indoor balls and more expensive. The leather balls give better grip are more uniform and retain their shape better than rubber.
Basketballs are usually made of a composite leather material, rubber, or real leather. The bladder on the inside is usually rubber.
A leather basketball has a inner rubber bladder which is inflated with air.
It is better for bounce and it seals in air better than standard leather.
Cows themselves have to be killed in order to give up their skins to be made into leather. It's the HUMANS who make the leather, and make it into shoes, belts, chaps, jackets, basketballs, baseballs, footballs, soccer balls, wallets, purses, the list goes on.
I would say yes but it all depends on how much air is in the basketball in question.

Most basketballs have an inner rubber sac that holds air. The outside of the ball can be composed of rubber, man-made fibers, or leather.
