Default Are NBA players wearing mouthguards smart or sissies?

Or both.

I think both, I don't think the league is that physical now to wear one. Players just don't lay out each other like the old days or look to injure each other with the new rule changes...

Nothing wrong with protecting your smile... Ask Danny Granger if its smart

Sure.

The league I play in, I have copped a stray elbow or foot in the mouth diving for the ball...

I can count on my hand the number of guys who have lost a tooth playing in competitive basketball over here though...

I was watching Paul jostle his mouthguard around at the foul line that prompted me to make the thread. And of course, try and provide something different to talk about

NBA players have the money to get veneers?

Although that picture is pretty damning

I mean you have the choice and I guess that is a good reason.

Would players be willing to wear padded helmets to prevent injury?

So in between all the practices, games, etc., you think they want to spend their time at the dentist for a painful operation?
