I occasionally wear a left wrist band or rubberband. In high school I was mostly accessory-less, but went on and off with double elbow pads my senior year. Also, because I came through in the headband era, I did in fact wear a headband for one of my high school games.

^yup, only philos can rock flashy useless accessories because of their inherent coolness.

I wear knee braces and ankle braces after a recent sprain, but i dont like them at all.

I wear McDavid body and leg armor under my shorts and jersey. I know it seems excessive, but I'm 6'3", slight of build, and play around the post. It gives me the confidence to bang against bigger players.

Don't wear any kind of sleeves, headbands, or armbands though. My philosophy has always been, if you're going to wear stuff like that... you better be real good.

compression short with pads around thighs and hamstring and ass
knee pads occassionally

these are great and avoided me quite a few bruises on my thighs and knees




i dont wear shooters sleeves but i think it can be beneficial for ball handlers . i always get scratched , slapped on the arms a lot. i think the sleeve will at least not leave any marks or scars on the arm if you wear them

I find myself wearing compression shorts as underwear most of the time lately. Shits comfy and slimming. Although I worry about my testicles so I counter that with equal amount of commando, which is even more comfortable.

Shoes, tape ankles, two pair socks, shin splint support (right ankle), compression shorts, basketball shorts, no shirt.

I used to wear a hamstring sleeve type of thing because I messed my hammy bad about ten years ago playing soccer. The compression shorts help so I stopped wearing it. I don't even know why I wear the shin splint support. I had shin splits about a year ago and didn't want to stop playing so I bought that (it works, btw) and once they went away, I decided to keep it.

Oh, and I recently started putting baby powder in the compression shorts before I ball or exercise. My junk stays sweat free and cool as a cucumber. You pour the powder in the shorts and a little in your hand. Then you pat it on your balls and stuff.

I recently bought a yellow wrist band. Feels like Kobe.

headband (prevents sweat getting into eyes)
fingerband that connects my left pinky to ring finger (pinky went zig-zag like a Z like 3 years back, always a threat to happen again)
arm warmer on right arm (if its hot, i dont need it)
used to wear ankle braces but nowadays just tie my sneakers tight and it helps.
