I pumped up a Basketball to 60 PSI, at about 55 it started making crackling noises, when I got to 60 PSI the crackling noise was constant and within 2 seconds of reaching 60 PSI the ball exploded. The ball was a Wilson Optima Rubber Basketball .
For NBA regulation basketballs, the requirement is between 7.5 and 8.5 psi. Your basketball may vary, and if it does, the packaging should state how much psi should be used.
According to NBA Rule 1, Section B, Article 6a:
" The ball shall be an officially approved NBA ball between 7 1 /2 and 8 1 /2 pounds pressure. "
7 1/2 and 8 1/2 psi
between 7 1/2 and 8 1/2 pounds pressure
The gauge on your pump, if you have one.
About 8 PSI
7.5 to 8.5 psi
A concrete strength of 3500 PSI should be just right for a basketball court.
Somewhere between 8-10 PSI
Tire gauge, and some basketball and bicycle pumps.
In basketball you score points, not goals.
The "Big Bang" explosion I hate doing science homework. This is what my homework is. lol
The two point shot has always existed in basketball.
