According to the Spalding website, (http://www.spalding.com/contact/contact.html#Q6), there are 122 dots per square inch on a Spalding Basketball which makes approximately 35,000 dots total. Some basketballs have different designs, though, and will have a different number of total dots.
but the dots are grips so the ball wont slip out of your hand
there are exactly 958 dots on this ball.
A men's basketball has 35k dots on it.
17,246 dots are on 1 NCAA Basketball and on an NBA Ball there are 22,847
by dots im guessing you mean dimples, and it varries on the ball, the size and the Type
For gripping the basketball better.
count em pal...count em
I can't tell you exactly, but I can tell you how to estimate the number of dots on a basketball. First, measure a 1 inch square on the surface of the basketball and count the dots it contains. Then use the formula for the area of a sphere, which is: 4PR2, or 4 times Pi times the radius squared. An official men's pro basketball is 9 inches in diameter, so the radius would be 4.5 inches and the formula would work out like this: 4 times 3.14 times 20.25 equals 254.34 square inches. Measure any areas on the basketball that have no dots and subtract that area from the total square inches arrived at above. Now multiply this number by the number of dots you counted and you've got a decent approximation.
Those dots are not called pimples, in proffessional terms they are called "spores" and there are appoximently 3,144 on a basketball.

i believe its 2 but i could be wrong on that one dont quote me..
the basketball will most likely bounce higher on a flat surface

There are 430 dots on a Nike golf ball. It took me 10 minutes to find out by marking each dot with a pen. Then writing down how many each time I made a line.
The surface area of an NBA men's official basketball is between 1.97 and 2.12 square feet.
a flat surface.

basketball, hard surface, net
The surface area of a women's basketball is approximately 0.17 meters square. The professional women's basketball has a circumference of 28.5 inches.
on a smooth surface
No. A sphere has the smallest surface to volume ratio possible and a basketball is nearly spherical in shape (it has surface dimpling and seams).
It depends on the manufacturer, style of the ball, size (if it's standard size or not)... Why don't you start counting!? ;)
