whats those plastic things on the grounds that the nba players rub their shoes on before they enter the court? Is it for grip?
If so, wouldn't it be a bad idea to have too much grip? For an example if a point guard tries to cross someone over, the fact that the grip is too tight wouldn't he injure his ankle? Then again if he has no grip at all I guess he could fall and get injured there as well.

Also, I usually wear Jordans and they have fine grip, however do you people need to have grip as well? or do you play with less grip on your shoes? Cause our gym's full of dust so it's hard to get a good grip.

First the knee pads, now shoe grip? Are you tryna become an NBA player..? :laugh:

Anyway. I don't have much grip, mainly cause it wore out, but I was never into shoes with hard grip and ankle guards and all that.

Yes, it is improve the shoes' grip on the court. It's to remove excess dust that have accumulated under the soles of your shoe as you walk from outside the court. So basically, you always have a brand new pair of shoes as you enter the court.

Anyway, when's the next 10-day contract?

:yay:
