— Basketball in The Reveal
Basketball was one of the 30 recommended characters who had a chance at joining the game during The Reveal and Reveal Novum. In the audition video, Basketball said that tennis balls aren't the only ones with lines. He failed to get into the game, though, receiving only 5 votes and placing 22nd, along with Clock.
In IDFB, Basketball, along with the other characters that are held inside the LOL has a chance to join the show via a viewer voting. Basketball was given a redesign as well, the glossy button now has a higher contrast.
