The Airless Basketball by Wilson

Stumbled on to this and gotta say it was very interesting. A 3D printed airless basketball that performs just like the old standard basketball. Just this one never needs air… still I have to wonder how sturdy it is and how easily one of those little frameworks might break. Wonder how the aerodynamics of all those holes affect shooting?

If a normal basketball gets low on air you can always just pump it up, but I’m guessing if one of those frameworks breaks on an airless, then you have to buy a new one.

Buy a new one? Great Marketing huh…. :joy:

I think tire designers have come up with similar concepts. Interesting.

If it will prevent me from shooting anymore air balls, I’m in. Tired of those punks just putting up my misses without having to take the ball back.
