After instituting a "business casual" dress code and cracking down on the length of uniform shorts, the NBA has identified its next fashion crusade.



League and team sources have told ESPN.com that the NBA, starting next season, intends to ban the tights sported at various points this season by several players, including three MVP candidates: Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

I find banishment to be a bit much but the way I feel this issue is heading, despite advocates having good reasons or not, the era of tights will soon be over.

just idiotic

these things actually work. Since Jwill followed wade wearing them on the heat, his knee tendonitis has been down a lot. It keeps his legs warm, and he hasnt missed a game since after missing a lot earlier in the season. He says the tights have helped a lot

I have to say i hate the look of them. Think they look girly. I do think its somewhat of a trend also. Sure, they might keep your legs warm, but come on. Its basketball. Basketball players wear shorts. What if NFL players started wearing shorts over their tights? It just doesnt look right. Get rid of em.

Why should the NBA front office care about this issue (or should I say non-issue) at all?

I see no reason to ban these.

it says that players can still where them if they send the league a written request from a team doctor detailing a "medical need" for the leggings. Thats a pretty big loop hole.
there you have it, that somewhat lessens their stupidity, but their still nazis.

So what constitutes a "medical need"?

(I'm guessing Kobe has a "medical need", but rookies and scrubs do not.)

Why bother banning these if anyone can apply to wear them?
