you can get them on eastbay.com, nba.com, nike.com, underarmour.com they all have them.

the mcdavid ones have a padding in them for your elbow.

all i have to say is if your going to wear them, you better fill them out. the last thing i want to see is a scrawny kid runnin around with his shooting sleeve falling off LOL

a shooting sleeve isn't supposed to make you shoot better, it's made to keep your arm warm and READY to shoot

personally i think shooting sleeves sole purposes are too look cool.

Reggie Miller never compained about his arm being cold while he was slingin in 3's.

a true shooter is ready to shoot when he walks in the gym.

The best should always be looking for a slight advantage, a warm arm shoots better. So if the feel of it doesn't bother you, wear a sleeve!

+1.

Shooting sleeves offer no real value. They originated when the league was trying to find a new way to cover up their new poster boy's (AI) 'unmarketable' tattoos and became a fashion trend.

You're playing basketball in climate controlled gym.

Any player that whines that his arm is to cold can't suit up with or for me.

Default Re: shooting arm sleeves

a shooting sleve is not going to stop tendinitis in your elbow. he would need to put a lot more pressure on it.

i would say at least 2-3 players per team in the NBA wear shooting sleves give or take.

im surprised they haven't banned it like they did to tights a couple of years back..
