    the head honchos of the NBA are running out of things to complain about.


    Seriously, this shit is getting ri-god damn-diculous. The dress code was questionable, but this is asinine. Next, stern is going to ban headbands, and soon.....eyes.

    smh....

    ^ if you like yo balls jigglin' around and slappin' yo thighs for 48 minutes, then don't wear tights.

    i wouldn't mind keeping my prized possessions in check with some tights.

    ^^ u can wear tights bro.. just not all the way down your leg. most nba players wear tights under their nba shorts where its not noticeable unless they fall on the floor. im sure those will be allowed because they are concealed

    "Yet there are numerous players who insist that wearing full-length spandex under their uniform shorts keeps limbs warmer and looser than anything seen previously in the NBA. Dallas Mavericks swingman Jerry Stackhouse is widely seen as the pioneer of this practice, relying on a pair of runners' tights throughout last season's playoffs to combat a longstanding groin injury"

    dark skin will be banned next.

    also, if your name is tyrell, damien, deshawn, tayshawn, or jerome you will have to change your name to bob, pete, billy, or jack.

    I hope David Stern is ready to catch a lot of mouth if they don't change their mind on this.

    It'd be one thing if this was just a "fashion statement", but fact of the matter is a lot of players wear them for injury concern. There's really no reason to ban them, it's not like the players are writing gang symbols on their tights and shit.
