    Check how much money you have. A basketball won't always be cheap. Bad ones range from $10 to $20, good quality ones from $30 - $50 and excellent ones from $50 and onwards.

    Check out the price. A basketball can never be too expensive nor too cheap. If a basketball is $50, then it is $50 worth of quality. Do not choose a cheap one that is under $35. A good one to choose is around $50, and if you have plenty of money, something that is over $60 is even better. But that's only if you have that money.

    Check the surface. Normally basketballs that are around $50 are covered in smooth leather. Look carefully through and hold each one in your hands. The more shiny leather and grippier, the better. Some recommended brands are Nike and Spalding.

    You can also choose by brand. As mentioned above, Nike and Spalding are your best choices. The general thing about them is that the quality of Spalding is much better, however Nike has a much better durability and is very resistant to scratches whilst Spalding balls can get scratched.
