Best Answer

Basketballs are sphere in shape because they need to be bounced at any time on anywhere. For example, if a Basketball was square in shape, it wouldn't bounce would it! If a basketball is round and round, then any part of it would be able to bounce on a surface. Basketballs are also sphere so that they can fit nice and smooth in your hands. When they fit nice and smooth in your hands, it is therefore easier to throw them around and shoot.
