You could say 2021 has been a great year for Wilson. Not only did the 107-year-old brand open their first flagship store, Wilson became the official game ball of the NBA after 37 years. Manufactured with 100% genuine leather, it also boasts an inflation retention lining that yields a longer lasting air holding. Additional features include the iconic NBA and Wilson logos in full grain pebbling, with the Wilson logo also including an anthracite inline. The official NBA game ball retails for $200.

“Wilson is excited to unlock our history and heritage with the NBA to grow the game of basketball on the global stage,” Kevin Murphy, General Manager of Wilson Team Sports said in the release. “On the heels of launching our WNBA and BAL partnerships, we will continue building for the future of the sport. Wilson will focus first on supporting the league and its players with its high-performance game balls, then extending our basketball family to reach fans, coaches and players at all levels, around the world.”

For budget-friendly basketball enthusiasts, there are less expensive versions of the ball with the same high-quality finishes and bounce. Scroll on to shop the different Wilson basketball styles as we await the NBA’s return.
