Tennis balls aren't the only ones with lines.
— Basketball, The Reveal

Basketball is a former recommended character in A Leg Up in the Race and one of the recommended characters Firey set on fire.

Basketball was one of the 30 recommended characters who had a chance to join the game during The Reveal and Reveal Novum. In the audition video, Basketball said that tennis balls aren't the only ones with lines. She failed to get into the game, however, receiving only 5 votes and placing 22nd, along with Clock.

In Episode 15, Basketball is limbless and she is recommended by kookyguy55.

In Episode 21, Basketball has arms and legs, was recommended by murphygundo, and she was one of the recommended characters to vote for Ice Cube.

Basketball also could have joined BFDIA in Yeah, Who? I Wanna Know, but she only got 86 votes, placing 44th, and she was flung to the LOL.

In IDFB, Basketball, along with the other characters that are held inside the LOL had a chance to join the show via a viewer voting. Basketball was given a redesign as well, which now has a shinier look, along with lighter colors.

In BFB, she helps form "A Better Name Than That" with 8-Ball, due to them both being balls.
