The inside diameter of a regulation rim is 18 inches. A regulation NBA basketball is between 29 1/2 to 29 7/8 inches in circumference, equating to a diameter of 9.39 to 9.51 inches, or an average of 9.45 inches. Now is where simple math will tell you that they won't fit, but both are able to compress over 1/2 inch each with minimal force, leaving you with a tightly fitting yet extremely possible attempt at making two basketballs at the same time. Conversely, you can take two basketballs placed side by side and place them on the top cylinder of the rim and make them not go through.

no, two mens basketballs cannot fit throug the hoop at once. two girls regulation basketballs, however, can fit through the rim at the same time

At the same time or not, yes. This has been tested and proven.

== == == == Contrary to popular opinion, it is proven true that two men's regulation size basketballs can fit in a rim at the same time. Although many people have suggested this to be false, this has been proven possible a few times.

I think that you mean how many basketballs can be stuck in a hoop and your answer is 2 for regular size baskets. I know it doesn't look like that but 2 can be stuck in the with of the top of the hoop at the same time, both going through. Interesting, eh, but we've all been taught to expect the unexpected.

State what type, people don't shop the same way for basketballs and car tires

Not if they are side-by-side, but if they are one on top of the other then yes.

It is 30 inches in circumference, I play high school basketball and we use the same size. Kids in 5th or 6th grade use a 28.5 size ball. Once you get to 7th grade you use an official 30 inch ball. Wilson and Spalding are by far the best basketballs if you are looking to buy one.

The regulation size for basketball nets are all the same at ten feet. The regulation for high school, college, and the NBA/WNBA use nets that are ten feet high.

No, as long as both balls are men's basketballs then they'll weigh the same.
