What is the official game ball in the NBA?


From the 2021/22 NBA season the ball used in the NBA is a Wilson NBA Official Game Basketball. Spalding has made the official ball for NBA since 1983, but Wilson recently replaced that and has a multiyear deal with the NBA. This is however not new to Wilson – they did deliver the ball to NBA from 1946 to 1982/83 season. The new deal also sees Wilson become the official ball of the WNBA, the NBA G League, NBA 2K League, and Basketball Africa League.

In Sweden, Wilson is perhaps mostly associated with Tennis, but as evident from above, they are very prominent in Basketball as well.

The size of the ball for men’s competition is 7.

Unfortunately Bench-Crew do not carry Wilson products, but there are other stores that can provide you with it. If you are interested in an alternative that (we think) is as good of a ball or better, we recommend the Molten BG5000 Genuin leather ball.
