What kind of move is this? I haven’t heard ONE personcomplain about those headbands.
回复：ayeno1.1k points·6 hours ago
Maybe Nike wasn't selling enough sweatbands and needs theplayers to wear those instead of the Ninja bands.
回复：NBASillySubstance834 points·6 hours ago
But some of the ninja bands were Nike branded lmao
回复：ayeno294 points·6 hours ago
Then I have no guesses to why they would ban it.
回复：Hawksduhpolan997 points·5 hours ago
1. Bring attentionto headbands
2. Make ppl wantthem that weren't aware of them before
3. Bring them backdue to "uproar"
回复：NBASillySubstance190 points·5 hours ago
It's a good way to drive up interest. Nike made theirbrand on controversy.

I hooped in Non slip fast food shoes once, they werereally old and ratty and the front was peeling. A 10 year old did a cross overand I tried to cut him off and my entire foot came through the front of theshoe. I've never played basketball after that.

They don’t they care about the uproar and will eventuallybring the headbands back

Marketing stunt, next they'll have "heard the willof the people" and bring them back.

Unprofessional is an euphemism for "hood".
回复：[GSW] Matt Barneslikekoolaid201 points·4 hours ago
Unless I’m ootl I can’t imagine those headbands being considered“hood” by anyone. That’s like a tennis thing.

Fed and Nadal have been wearing headbands like these forpractically their entire careers. Doesn’t seem unprofessional at all
回复：Celticsjohnnyrockets527126points·3 hours ago
They’re not black though.
回复：NBA10b-555 points·3 hours ago
I think you have to account for context. Tennis is fullof white players, while basketball is full of black players. To old white men,that's a big ass difference.
A 6'9" black dude wearing a ninja headband looks toomuch like a gang banger wearing a durag to some people.
回复：LakersMuncharooski71 points·4 hours ago
For a company whose main source of income is creatingshoes for the urban hip-hop culture they sure don't care about black athletesthemselves.
If the whitest dude in the NBA wore those ninja headbandsthey wouldn't care.

As soon as Westbrook put one on they tried to ban it.
They didnt want us to know his true identity.
