Air pressure in a room is less than that of a basketball since it does not crush the basketball. Think of the crushed can experiment.

You then transfer the can on a container with cold water (making sure the opening of the can is covered with the cold water). You should see the can implode or at least the outside air pressure (since it's greater than that of the air pressure in the can) crush the can. Opposite of the basketball.
