(64% packing density) (NBA official ball standards, Size 7)
A NBA official ball, manufactured by Spalding, is a Size 7 ball measures about 60.055536436 gills. These balls have 4,118 pebbles each with a diameter of 2.5 mm

(for 70 kg body; average altitude; average)
The volume of blood in the average human body is about 40 gills. Persons living at high altitude, however, may have up to an additional 20 gills of blood to compensate for the lower oxygen level.
