Starting next season, the NBA intends to ban tights, ESPN reported Thursday, citing unnamed league and team sources.
According to ESPN, league officials apparently don't like the look, which has been sported by such stars as Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.
The NBA can change the dress code without involving the union, ESPN reported.
Under the new rule change, players who want to wear tights would need a note from a doctor detailing a "medical need," ESPN reported.
"They've really become important to me," Stackhouse said, ESPN reported. "I've had a couple groin injuries and they help me get comfortable. I wear thigh sleeves, too, and the tights also help keep them from sliding down my legs. They just hold everything together."
