How does air pressure afftect the bounce of a basketball?

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.

How many PSI in one pound?

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!
