A rubber basketball will bounce higher than a leather basketball of equal internal pressure. The leather covering adds additional weight and is less flexible.

A leather basketball is better than a rubber ball but if your playing outside the ground ruins the leather so a rubber ball is better when you are playing outside

Yes, a rubber basketball WILL bounce higher than a leather one, but leather balls generally have better grip and are mush easier to shoot and control on the dribble.

Pig leather is very nice and durable and it is possible to be used for making garments as well. Leather is processed animal skin. That is why there is goat skin leather, cow hide, lamb skin leather, ostrich leather... All you have to do is ask what type of leather is used to make a product.

The basketball is made of an outer coating surrounding an inner rubber bladder. The leather outside is normally on an indoor-only ball and is easily ruined if used outside. There are indoor/outdoor composite balls that are designed for recreational use.

The leather is put on the basketball for grip, wear and tear, and consistency. The bounce of the ball comes from the rubber bladder that the leather is surrounding. Air pressure and the quality of the ball effect it's bounce more than the leather.
