Will a basketball blow up if you put helium in it?

That all depends how much helium you put in it. A basketball should be able to take the same amount of pressure, whether it's pressure from air or helium. So, if you inflate it only to the recommended pressure, it should be a problem. The same amount of pressure of helium will be less mass, so in the end the basketball will be lighter, as you would probably expect, by a very small amount.
