The Latest Trend from the NBA

Monday, 10 December 2012  |  Paul

Having played basketball since the age of 12, I have always been a fan of the NBA. Showcasing the games most talented players, it is inspiring to watch and great for learning new moves and plays.

Recently I have noticed a trend with some of the top players, such as Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James and Dwight Howard wearing coloured arm sleeves. Whether this is primarily for support, protection or as a fashion statement I’m not quite sure, but none the less I thought I’d give one a go.

I chose the McDavid Power Shooter Arm Sleeve in black. To be honest, when I first put it on in front of my friends I did feel like a bit of a Muppet, but once the game started I completely forgot I had it on! In the product description it states that the McDavid Power Shooter Arm Sleeve encourages circulation through the arm, which I can’t vouch for, but it definitely did keep my elbow joint warm, especially when your team sits out of the scrimmage. Also one of the best points I found was the Hexpad that protect the elbow, so there is no worry of hurting yourself when diving for loose balls or throwing elbows in the paint! Also, let’s be honest it does look pretty cool!!


Anyway, my advice if you are considering one is to try it!!
