Because of the weight of the basketball.

the NBA regulation weight for a basketball is 3 lbs

22 oz. in NCAA Men's Basketball

The difference between them is a girls basketball is not as heavy as a boys basketball!

Since "air" does not weigh anything, the overall weight then of the basketball would be the same if inflated or deflated.

the weight of a basketball is usually around 20 ounces. or a pund and 4 ounces. hope this answers your quesion.

yes, the weight of a basketball does affect free throws because while shooting a free throw you have a routine for every opportunity of shooting a free throw and if have a basketball that has different weight then your other basketball then you will end up short or long.
