Can anybody please tell me why Melo wears two arm sleeves instead of just the one he wore while he was playing in Denver?

This is a thread? People must really hate someone to make a topic about something this dumb.

And he had elbow bursitis and a sore right elbow that hurt him when he first got with the Knicks. Maybe this was why he put a right sleeve on also. Placebo effect on top of the sleeves keeping your arm warm and loose.

Mostly for style but if you look at his Arm Sleeves, they actually have padding in them in certain areas. Melo takes a ton of contact under the rim.

Didn't Iverson have to wear those because of tattoo's that the NBA didn't want being shown?

Probi for extra padding. If ppl actually look at Melo during games, he wears alot of padding including in his rib cage/abdomen area. I think its great though and will definitely prolong his NBA career.

My guess would also be to cover up his tatoos but I dont have any inside knowledge.

I think he wears them so people can create more threads on PSD about the Knicks.

You're kidding yourself to think he does it for more than just fashion. Oh, well. He is entitled.

Lol... No one has a problem when Ray Allen did it, or Dwight, or Josh Smith. It's only stupid when Carmelo does it. :laugh2:

And to everyone saying it's because of tatts that the NBA doesn't aprove of, thats false.

I wouldn't doubt that Melo wear's both for fashion. I kno when Ray Allen did it, it was because, he said Richard Hamilton used to not clip his finger nails, and would constantly scratch his arms, so people have they're reasons. But that material actually does help keep muscles loose, increased blood flow, and prevent muscle exhaustion. Me personally, prefer to wear them on my legs. Next time you go running, get you some of the under armour leggings, you'll feel the difference in your calves. The Adidas powerweb ones that Dwight wears, are even better.

They are an essential part of his patented finisher technique that he uses on your mom.

The REAL reason why he wears it was due to an elbow injury from 2010 but he keeps wearing it to keep it protected.

Dwight wears double arm sleeves to protect himself from cuts and scratches.
