Yes, the NBA can ban anything they darn well please, but thank god they actually fix their mistakes sometimes.
HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: ENDEVR looks to be the strength tape of choice in the NBA.
The NBA is letting player use strength tape during games on a trial basis. Why nondescript Kinesiology tape was banned in the first place probably says a lot more about the NBA's desire to dictate law than their ability to think clearly, but whatever the reason ENDEVR strength tape looks be the choice of ballers everywhere. And anything that helps keep me healthy and on the court is good by me.
Kinesiology tape is that tape you see some athletes wearing on all types of wacky places on their bodies. The beauty of it is that it provides strength and stability to specifically targeted tendons and muscles as needed. It comes in a breathable cotton fabric that has some serious sticking power. ENDEVR can stick for up to 5 days in any kind of weather. You read more about ENDEVR and purchase it here. It comes in 10 different colors and has pre-cut shapes and sizes for applications to common injury areas like foot, ankle, shoulder, knee, elbow, wrist, and neck. It goes for $15.99 a roll or $10.99 for a kit.
