The WAVE has grooves on the leather and the regular basketball is smooth on the leather.
The type of leather on a basketball
A leather basketball is better than a rubber ball but if your playing outside the ground ruins the leather so a rubber ball is better when you are playing outside
There are 3 types of material used on a basketball:1. Leather 2. Composite/Synthetic Leather3. Rubber
A leather basketball has a inner rubber bladder which is inflated with air.
It is made out of leather and air
The leather is put on the basketball for grip, wear and tear, and consistency. The bounce of the ball comes from the rubber bladder that the leather is surrounding. Air pressure and the quality of the ball effect it's bounce more than the leather.
