Best Answer

Regular air is perfectly acceptable. To fill it, get a bike pump with a small needle that will fit the small black hole on your Basketball and pump air through the tube on the system, through the needle and into the basketball until it is inflated as much as you like. You can buy a bike pump/air pump at almost anywhere including Walmart or walgreens.
