an inflated because it takes up more room than a deflated one

It depends on how you define the Basketball. If you define it as just the rubber, then the mass does not change when it is inflated. If you consider the air inside the ball to be part of the ball then adding more air adds more mass. Mass is "stuff". Air has mass because air is stuff.

Which would go faster a D-inflated football or a inflated football?

An inflated football is essentially more aerodynamic than a deflated football. The inflated one would travel faster and a greater distance. However, if you dropped them both at the same time, they would it the ground at the same time, because gravity pulls everything downward at 9.81 meters per second squared (ignoring the effects of air resistance in this last case).
