The NBA Bans The Ninja Style Headband

The NBA has decided to ban the ninja-style headbands made famous in the 2018-2019 season. 

The league claims that they never formally approved the headband as part of the uniform. They allowed during the season because they did not want to cause a disruption in the season.

"The ninja-style headwear is not part of the NBA uniform and hasn't been through the league approval process, 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. - Mike Bass, NBA Spokesperson

The ninja-style headbands were worn by players like Jimmy Butler, Jarrett Allen, Jrue Holiday and more. I think the NBA is missing out a chance to cash in on a merchandising moment for years to come. I am sure the NBA makes million from merchandising, but these ninja-style headbands could be a cultural phenomenon.
