Height of bounce will not depend on the mass at all. It depends on the elasticity of the ball and the height where from it is dropped.
Pressure in a basketball is 2 sided. First you want the ball to react well when you bounce it so you do not become fatigued bouncing the ball. Second, you want the ball to be less reactive at the rim so it will stay there longer and perhaps fall in. The normal inflation pressure is from 7 to 9 pounds. Exceeding the pressure will cause the ball to loose its shape and fail prematurely; be less playable.
NBA rules state a basketball's air pressure should be between 7.5 and 8.5 pounds.
I have not actually tried this, but would I bet on the basketball. I am pretty sure that regulation basketball are inflated with several more pounds of pressure , and basketballs need to be able to bounce appropriately, since the dribble is an important part of the game. Volleyballs need to be soft .
NBA regulation requires to be 7.5 to 8.5 pounds in air pressure.:)

It Takes 7 Pounds Of Pressure To Remove A Human Ear!
3000 pounds of pressure they can snap a broom handle in half
No more than 9 pounds per square inch (psi). But enough so that it is not flat and can be bounced up to your waist if dropped from above your head with your hands extended.
pound is not a unit of pressure.
Around 10.000 pounds
psi is a pressure and pound is a mass or weight. That is like apples and bananas. EDIT: I think the question refers to a basketball. For example, on my basketball it reads: "Inflate 7 to 9 LBS". This is very confusing indeed, with no mention of pressure. However, they actually mean, in this case, "LBS per square inch" - I don't know why it's not specified, but POUNDS in this case means POUNDS PER SQUARE INCH. Hooray for strange ways of specifying pressure!
