Most heard reason is bc the fabric of jerseys irritate them.

*I read Ewing started the 'trend' when he wore a shirt under his jerseys because he used to catch a cold. I call bull****.


sounds odd but i get simular affects if i dont wear something under the jersey like a thick singlet or underarmour

Do you reckon the Bulls would drop their 'no headbands' rule for LeBron?

They wear them in college because they can. They don't wear them in the Nba because it's against the dress code.

Bulls had that rule to clean-up chicago during the eddie robinson days. dunno about the heat and orlando.

Regarding Tshirts, maybe they don't want to show their armpits lol

exactly...if nba players were allowed to, they would. if you ever see footage of an nba practice, half the guys are wearing long sleaved shirts and sweatpants while they practice.

I think that's mainly to keep warm since you're not doing full court sprinting, etc..

I've seen a pic of an NBA rookie (name doesn't come to mind, but I think he played for the Suns) who wore a t-shirt under his NBA jersey. Wish I could find that trading card again.
