I was so surprised that the ball came not inflated. I will be returning.


you get what you paid for

how do ship a ball without air I should have read the reviews before i order it


no air but I own a pump

This is a quality basketball that ships with no air. Simple as that. Pump it up and it gets round and it bounces great. Evidently a lot of people do not own a pump (I never knew that would be an issue) and that is the reason for the majority of the 1 star reviews. If you are dead set on not buying an inflation device of some sort, don't buy a basketball because eventually you WILL need to put air in it. If you combine the cost of this basketball with a simple hand pump it will still be cheaper than most other basketballs of the same caliber, and you keep a tool (I bought mine in 1973) you can use for a multitude of other air filling needs.


Right Price

The ball is cheaply priced and serves the purpose of a basketball. However, I wish I'd read the previous reviews about how the ball shipped. It arrived deflated! This is no where in the description of the product so imagine my surprise when it was opened as a gift. Everyone thought the ball popped during transport. I went immediately to the reviews and everyone had the same complaint! I ordered this as it was offered on the same page of the basketball goal I also purchased so the reviews I was made privy to were those ratings of the basketball goal not the package offer on the page of the basketball goal which presents the ball & goal as a package deal. Then I had to get online and purchase a separate pump for the ball and wait for that to ship to the store. Overall, it's aggravating when you have to go through all these extra steps before even enjoying your purchase.


MacGregor X35WC Basketball is a great deal.

It arrived on time and is above my expectations. Great grip and weight and size are good.
