Really quick way :)

Create a Sphere and sub-divide (Subsurf) it so it doesnt look blocky, maybe turn down the specular a bit (Make sure it doesn't look too shiny).
Then find a basket ball texture, and find a suitable bump map so it looks realistic (And not like a sphere and a slapped on texture).
Add the texture, mayeb a bit of UV Mapping so its scaled correctly. Render and see how it looks.
This isn't the best way, but its the quick way :)

EDIT: Also check out the manual, it can help loads!  :D
