This is silly but no more HIGH SOCKs

from Mark Cuban's blog 02/13/06

*******3. This is in response to a future question i will get and really is the most shocking of all. Our eqiupment managers just told me that the NBA has ordered our suppliers to stop making the high tube socks that some of our players wear.

The NBA gets props for doing it now, rather than after the start of next season and fining players for wearing them, but my goodness. What is the point ? I dont get it.************



How silly is that ? No more high socks ?? I mean come on , I admit I never liked them anyway but what of player individuality ?

sorry Qrich, Van Horn, Nick V etc

yeah I guess so . I just noticed those for the first time on Dwayne Wade the other day. I think Stackhouse wears em too, I don't see the benefit in those things unless they get cold easily ?

This just in, Stern to start designing new basketball robots to replace players, so that his dream of every team and player in the league looking exactly the same can someday come true.

Cuban doesnt care about socks. He cares about the commish making stupid rules.

Now, why Stern cares is a mystery. Apparently rich white people are turned off by high socks.

another move towards supreme uniformity. The fact that there are so many styles throughout the NBA is a tribute to the diverse cultures and societies that surround the game and influence the game. Whats next, cornrows?? Head bands??? Long shorts should have nixed long ago. The commish should just hope that they fade away like flattops and box hair cuts.

As long as they wear clothes that FIT... who cares? This includes the John Stockton short-shorts, and those thug 3-4x size too big (hang down to the knees!!) 'can house a family of 4' hip-hop style shorts. That ain't stylin....

I'd assume they keep you warm, keep your muscles from tensing up when you sit.

I can't wait until plastic surgery is mandated so that all players look alike.

It's all about the benjamins



Or in my case:
