Nearly all basketballs have an inflatable inner rubber bladder inside, generally wrapped in layers of fiber and then covered with a tacky surface made either from leather (traditional), rubber, or a synthetic composite. As in most inflatable balls, there is a small needle valve opening to allow the pressure to be increased or decreased.

Precise specifications no doubt vary slightly from league to league; NBA, WNBA, Olympic, International, Under 20 etc., etc. Best consult specific league websites for most current details.

Basketballs are almost all made with the same materials. They have an inflatable rubber interior, which is then wrapped in layers of fiber. That's then covered rubber, synthetic composite, or the most common, leather.

Most basketballs have an inner rubber sac that holds air. The outside of the ball can be composed of rubber, man-made fibers, or leather.

Basketballs are made using Latex. Latex is commonly used to make a number of things like tires and rubber shoes. It is derived from Hevea which is a rubber tree.
