The Basketball is a non-member den item that was released in Jam Mart Furniture during June 2011. It was re-released for only six days on March 16, 2017. It then was re-released again on June 12, 2019.
The Basketball consists of an orange sphere that has one dark brown groove curving down the top of the basketball and ending at the bottom. Three similar lines arc around the sides of the basketball, overlapping the main groove. A few tiny patches of whitish dots can be seen on the surface of the ball as well. This item has no other variants.
