Default Bball shorts

Ok, let me first address by saying I might have a problem.



I was going through my collection, and the # of basketball shorts I have now is easily pushing 30+ pairs. I only wear them to play ball, and to lounge around the house in but it seems as though I feel most comfortable in a pair of basketball shorts.

I also have to add that I don't pay for all of mine. As shady as it sounds, if I go to Kohls, Dick's Sporting Goods, Footlocker, Champs, Sportmart, etc. and they have a pair I like, and the pair doesn't have one of those electric / ink tags on it, I throw them on in the dressing room under my pants and remove the regular tag and walk out. And in doing so, I now have a ridiculous amount of basketball shorts. Some I never even wear or have worn, though I try to rotate. I was wondering, since the rest of you here are bball heads ... does anyone else have a ridiculous number of basketball shorts? Or just how many period? Or am I just a quirky whack job?

Don't know why I never thought of that. Good plan.

man I gotta have about 70 myself, and that's after many cycles of like every few weeks I take the least worn ones and they go to Goodwill. I have 5 pair in my virgin tags drawer, which is clothes that I have yet to pop the tag on and wear.

My favorite of all of them are the Reebok NBA Fusion ones I have. They're the official NBA practice ones (Adidas makes them now since they acquired RBK and thusly their nBA contract). When they came out they were 40$, but they were basically impossible to find other than nba store online and eastbay, but those were only regular sizes. I went by Marshall's one day and happened upon like 5 pair and all in tall sizes which are considerably longer. They all have this chromish sheen to them, are really thin and lightweight, and moisture wicking, and got the NBA logo on the leg and white stripes on either side

I don't think your problem is with the number of hoop shorts you have.... :rollingeyes:

I suggest you dont steal anymore. It seems harmless, I know, but eventually you'll get caught.

I only have 2 different pairs I ball in.. a black pair of jordan shorts and some white/red nike shorts. Damn I got more shoes then shorts.
