Basketball Uniforms ”“ The Facts behind the Fashion

by Catherine Miller on Jan 7, 2011

Clothing in sports has come a long way, from home made to commercially manufactured uniforms. The role played by sports uniforms and associated gears are undeniable today. They can bring out a huge difference in the performance of the players and can impact the team's morale. Hence, each sport or game has a specific set of apparels and associated gears that the players taking part dons themselves with. These apparel and associated gear could range from a simple wrist band to absorb sweat in games like tennis, to protective helmets and pads donned by ice hockey players and so on. Apparel and gear cannot be neglected anymore; the players know that by not wearing one they not only put their performance at risk but even their safety too. These days almost every game and sport has a standard requirement for uniforms and their associated gears. Look at the game of basketball; from the ball to the shorts, jerseys to shoes, etc, each of them comes together like the vital parts of any machinery, without which the proper functioning of the machinery suffers. Basketball is a game that demands a lot of energy and alertness with constant movement on the court. There is hardly anytime or place where a player can stand idle for a few seconds. The moment the ball starts bouncing so do the players, with or behind the ball. The standard size of a basketball in the NBA is 29.5 inches in circumference. Organized basketball leagues generally have proper specifications for the balls to be used in any official competition. The weight, inflation pressure, bounce, circumference, materials used, etc., are kept in consideration. Basketball jerseys are a part of the uniform for the basketball players. Fans also wear them for fashion or as a statement about their favorite team. The design of the jerseys should give the player maximum comfort while he/she plays the game. There are constant sprinting, pushing, jumping, etc., involved in the game, so the jersey should be flexible and lightweight to allow maximum movement and least constraint. The basketball shorts are a little different from the ones worn in other sports like soccer and other track and field sports. Their length generally reaches or exceeds the knees of the wearer and is loosely fitted. Synthetic materials and nylon are usually used as the fabric for making basketball shorts. The reason for this is because such materials are good sweat absorbers. They are also light in weight and are designed to provide the wearer comfort and flexibility during the game. A basketball game is played by holding the ball with the hands and passing it around to finally shoot it into the hoop. Apparently it looks like the game is played entirely with the hands, but like in any other game played on solid ground, the feet of the player determines a lot of the player's performance. The feet give the rest of the body the speed and firmness. Therefore a lot of expertise goes into designing basketballs shoes. Lightweight and comfort, as in other uniform units (like jerseys and shorts), are basic requirements. Basketball shoes are also designed to absorb the shocks produced every time the player lands on the ground after a jump. It also should help the player run faster and remain comfortable with good grip on the floor yet soft on the feet. Many online stores provide basketball uniforms, ready made or customizable. You can order uniforms from one of them for the game or your practice sessions. Remember the next time you buy your basketball uniform they are meant to give you comfort in the game, they are fashionable and they are your team's pride. So always go for the best that you can afford and enhance your game play, style quotient and team's morale.
