Report: NBA Will No Longer Allow ‘Ninja-Style’ Headbands Jimmy Butler Wore Last Season

1 Min Read

Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler is known for expressing himself on and off the basketball court.

Last season, one form of self-expression that Butler took part in was wearing the ninja-style headbands that became quite popular throughout the season.

Per a Monday report, Butler and the rest of the NBA stars who took part in the new flare will have to find a new way to wick away sweat.

It’s something of a letdown to see the NBA disallow the flashy headgear and it will certainly reduce the level of individuality that players can express on the court. As the report indicates, other players that regularly donned the bands last season included point guard Jrue Holiday and big man Jarrett Allen.

Former Heat star LeBron James has also recently been seen wearing the gear in offseason scrimmages.

As the 2019-20 regular season quickly approaches, it will now be up to players to find a new way to personalize their looks on the court. Considering Butler’s reputation, it likely won’t be all that difficult for him to find a way to separate himself from the pack.
