rubber bounces farther
a bouncey ball
I would say yes but it all depends on how much air is in the basketball in question.
Basketballs are made using leather, composite leather or rubber as the covering. Rubber balls may be all rubber and can be used in water indoors and out. Leather and composite leather basketballs are indoor balls and more expensive. The leather balls give better grip are more uniform and retain their shape better than rubber.
Basketballs are usually made of a composite leather material, rubber, or real leather. The bladder on the inside is usually rubber.
A leather basketball has a inner rubber bladder which is inflated with air.
Most basketballs have an inner rubber sac that holds air. The outside of the ball can be composed of rubber, man-made fibers, or leather.
I wouldn't think so, but it may help with dribbling.
The first basketballs were made from panels of leather stitched together with a rubber bladder inside. The very first basketballs used were actually just soccer balls.
The runner bladder used for making basketballs is made out of rubber.
