apparently the sock-esque protuberance is a "calf-length compression sleeve" that i guess is built into these shoes

art, Tuesday, 12 April 2016 21:26 (four years ago) link

yeah durant wore them for warmups but hasn't warn them in a game yet iirc

Wouldn't that cause more knee injuries / wear+tear?

Jenny Ondioleeene (Leee), Tuesday, 12 April 2016 21:30 (four years ago) link

not sure why it would? just socks more or less.

Better Pau Gasol (Spottie), Tuesday, 12 April 2016 21:32 (four years ago) link

I remember reading somewhere that the more you immobilize the ankles, the more stress goes into the knees. So if they're just compression socks, maybe not?

Jenny Ondioleeene (Leee), Tuesday, 12 April 2016 21:38 (four years ago) link

this is going to end with players in full body compression iron man/ greenscreen suits up to their necks and in 2023 some young hotshot will start covering his head and then THAT'S gonna be a thing

Really like the color scheme of the buzz city unis. Actually like everything about those minus the sleeves and the fact that they say buzz city.

those white ones are prob the best okc unis but the stripes on the pants are nonsensical. it's like someone designed good uniforms and was like "wait these are for okc they have to be hideous in some way"

It’s true tho, time for the mandatory suit to go

Spottie, Sunday, 26 July 2020 03:44 (two months ago) link

im torn on one hand the suit is kinda a silly concept but its also such an established part of the look of the game, also the coaches look like shit in their polos, i think keep the suit it give a sense of occasion

lag∞n, Sunday, 26 July 2020 12:51 (two months ago) link

i think if youre gonna get rid of the suit tho coaches should wear warmups instead of dork ass polos and khakis

lag∞n, Sunday, 26 July 2020 12:52 (two months ago) link

No way, make them wear ceremonial robes

methinks dababy doth bop shit too much (m bison), Sunday, 26 July 2020 14:32 (two months ago) link

Not wearing a suit makes it look like their coaching either the Olympics or NCAA. It conjures up images of Bobby Knight, which is never good.

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Sunday, 26 July 2020 14:55 (two months ago) link

yeah, it makes me think of knight, too. idk, i'm fine with suits, i see enough biz-cazh in real life as it is.

circles, Sunday, 26 July 2020 15:00 (two months ago) link

the suits add lil bit of glitz a lil glamour, the glow of a big playoff game with all the celebs in attendance, something thats fading from popular entertainment, see boxing compared to mma for instance

lag∞n, Sunday, 26 July 2020 15:17 (two months ago) link

also it’s more flexible now with some guys forgoing a tie or doing a sportcoat. i think that’s fine but polos suck on everyone.

call all destroyer, Sunday, 26 July 2020 15:34 (two months ago) link

no one should look like they just came off the golf course, it’s really one of the worst looks

loooool that is some jimmy butler shit

methinks dababy doth bop shit too much (m bison), Saturday, 1 August 2020 17:22 (one month ago) link

i'm gonna jump to my man's defense here by noting that on the broadcast lisa salters explained that jimmy wanted to make the statement that he is no different than the average black man. he actually came out onto the floor w/ the no name jersey on before heading back to the bench and switching

J0rdan S., Saturday, 1 August 2020 19:09 (one month ago) link

i think it was, in his mind, a black lives matter protest, not an all lives matter one

J0rdan S., Saturday, 1 August 2020 19:10 (one month ago) link

i figured, its just *the way* he chose to do it was v jimmy

methinks dababy doth bop shit too much (m bison), Saturday, 1 August 2020 19:59 (one month ago) link

i think it was a cool but also very jimmy butler idea, visually especially i like it, and it was even more so a very league thing to refuse him, corporate mediated symbolic protest and so forth
