NBA announce ninja style headgear ban which will not be allowed in the 2018-20 season players will be banned from wearing ninja style.
The headbands have caused alarm among some NBA teams because of the design’s loose ties on the back.
“Teams have raised concerns regarding safety and consistency of size, length, and how they are tied, which requires a thorough review before consideration of any rule change,” said NBA spokesman Mike Bass.
“When some players began wearing them last season, we didn’t want to cause a disruption by intervening midseason, but we notified our teams in May that they would not be part of this season’s uniforms,” said Bass.
“The ninja-style headwear is not part of the NBA uniform and hasn’t been through the league approval process.”
