We spent 25 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top selections for this wiki. Ideal for passing, dribbling, and ball-control drills, one of these weighted basketballs will increase the strength in your fingers, hands, and forearms when used consistently. You'll dribble harder, pass faster, and grip the ball like you're trying to squeeze the air out of it. Some coaches say you shouldn't use them for shooting, though, because they can throw off your range and shot mechanics. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best weighted basketball on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

October 31, 2018: While any weighted basketball will help build skill and strength in the fundamentals, the items on this list were chosen for quality, durability, and value.

Fed up with crowding on the east coast, Joe fled for the open spaces. He now lives in the intermountain west where he stays busy with work, children, and grandchildren. When he's not writing or researching, he's probably hiking in the desert or skiing in the mountains.
