A couple things may be causing a bump on your Basketball. First, if it was allowed to deflate, the basketball loses shape and this can create a weak spot when its pumped back up. Also, there could be a weakness in the rubber bladder inside the basketball that's causing a lump, similar to the way a car tire can get a lump from age and stress and structural weakness in the rubber.
