I've been using this ball on an outdoor court, and it is great.
AntsDivideLabor
It came deflated, which is fine, but after I pumped it up it was obvious it was out of round (spin it up in the air and it wobbles).
sportlivin
After a few weeks of use maybe 30 minutes 3 times a week the ball started growing bumps/air bubbles at the seems.

Size Name: Official Size 7 (29.5")
For an outdoor basketball, grip, durability and balance, are probably the most important considerations. Spalding's `Street' basketball ranks pretty high in those key departments. You get a nice firm grip, the durability of the pebbled finish seems to be pretty good, and you get a nice bounce on various types of hardcourts. The grip may not be as good as Spalding's NBA `Legacy' ball, but it is very close. Like many outdoor type balls, it may feel a little heavy on an indoor court. It's reasonably priced, so if you need an outdoor ball, you really can't go wrong with this one.

Ball is well constructed and comes well packaged. Seems durable as well. Note that this is a rubber ball and therefore will be rougher on the hands than an indoor leather ball. I'm happy with it.

Size Name: Intermediate Size 6 (28.5") Verified Purchase
I suspect something may be wrong with the Spalding intermediate size basketball because nearly every time I throw the ball with varying degrees of arc, it makes a loud, dischordant, reverberating sound against the rim and fails to adequately follow a path through the cylindrical oriface as I've seen the tall fellows on tv do. This is the second Spalding branded ball I've tried with these same poor results. My percentage of made shots to missed shots is vastly disproportionate in favor of the latter. One neighbor boy suggested my problem may be the result of my throwing "bricks" as he called them. I assured him I was, indeed, throwing a basketball and not masonic construction materials. The ball appears to be sufficiently radially symmetric with equal internal distribution of air and no external weather related inclimations or phenomena were noticeable nor reported in local media. However, when I attempt the bounce the ball as I move about the driveway, the ball doesn't always return to my hand and I've seen on tv. It often bounces off of my feet and rolls off to the neighbor's yard. Once, the ball returned very quickly into my groin area, seemingly defying Newtonion laws of motion as the amount of energy radiated into this sensitive area seemed to be exponentially higher than the amount of force propelled downward. I was at once fascinated with the idea that perhaps the angle of the driveway combined with the spin of the ball may have invoked the law of conservation of angular momentum. My fascination quickly subsided in indirect proportion to the amount of pain in my lower abdomen while I gingerly limped to my office to ponder where the physics was breaking down.Read more ›

Bought this ball for the summer season to shoot some hoops at an outdoor court near my house. Court was typical playground setup, with blacktops and basic metal backboard and rim.

The ball arrived in perfect condition. I pumped in a little extra air, and off I went. Played about 6-8 hours each week using this ball, all on outdoor surface. The rubber and grooves tolerated the rough outdoor surface very well. Three months later, as I changed to play indoors, the surface and grip of the ball were still excellent.

The ball also performed well in the indoor setup. Granted, it wasn't nearly as good as other basketballs made of composite or leather material... But keep in mind that this cost $10-15, I thought it was perfect for me as a recreational (and aging) pick-up "baller." In any case, I don't think I possess the athleticism to really benefit from the difference in quality of a more expensive, better material ball.

Six months into ownership, the inflation valve broke as I tried to pump the ball. In short, the valve basically "slipped" inside the mall, so it was no longer inflatable. The only disappointment I have with this ball is its relatively short lifespan. I tried to look up warranty information from Spalding's website, but thankfully Amazon came to the rescue.

TL; DR

PROs:
-Affordable
-Grip/surface can withstand extended use
-Designed for outdoor, but of course it also bounces indoor as well

CONs:
-Longevity
-Material is not leather, not composite

IDEAL FOR:
-Agingin ballers with arthritic knees, fluid build-up, ankle soreness, bad shoulders, etc.

I wanted the ball to play outdoors and this one I liked very much. A good rubber, a good bounce.

I am sorry, but I trusted over 100 reviews that said this was was good, and I finally decided to get it.

The price was definitely attractive, but as always, you get what you pay for.

If you have ever played with Indoor balls like TF-1000, or quality outdoor balls Zi/O Excel Basketball then you will hate this ball.

The one I got was nicely inflated, but is not fully round, so the bounce is unpredictable, and the rubber consturction doesn't look that quality.

I am keeping mine just because I bought it at a good price ($10.00), and I'll use it as a second ball, but hope this will save some of you the time and money that you don't want to spend.
