Typically most NBA players wear a spandex Under Armour or Nike undershirt under their uniform, and now most players are wearing spandex sleeves for their arms or for their shins.

Im just thinking at the rate things are going, after Adidas' deal is up with the NBA and Under Armour can step up to get the uniforms. That spandex uniforms might just happen, or uniforms similar to that of some college basketball teams where the uniform looks basically skintight.

What do you guys think is better? The current loose basketball uniform from Adidas or some specialized basketball uniform that looks like a track suit?

I dont think it would happen or atleast anytime soon. Just becuase the NBa would lose alot of money in Jersey sales. I dont know to many people running out to buy a spandex shirts as of right now.

Can only work with a few players. Glen Davis in one of those uniforms? However, Dwight Howard wears his jerseys quite tight, but I guess that's just how he is.

Yeah, its just the way Under Armour and even Nike are going with some of their basketball related stuff. I mean come on now, they're spandex leggings were like $65, and I only paid that much after the guy told me about how loaded they are with technology. I get home and find out that they aren't even Wi Fi capable.

Black guys will never want to wear that **** and they're the trendsetters so it wont happen

Thats surprising because I just watched a bunch of black guys wear body suits to exercise for the NFL.

I wouldn't be surprised if it happened, basketball is more like track & field where these spandex outfits are often found. Nike only established the System of Dress prototype uniform after doing tests that showed basketball players felt more free with a compressed uniform when in movement rather than the loose one which is starting to fade away in college basketball.

Now they're bringing this technology to the college football game.

I hinted at that in my post.

Everybody is now wearing a compressed spandex top under their uniform and those willing to pay wear compressed leggings under their pads.

This even included some of our offensive lineman this past season.
