Ball Don't Lie - NBA

During the 1999-00 season, after years of seeing just one player (Clifford Robinson) wearing one, headbands became popular amongst NBA players.

Really popular.

In fact, one game that season (I can't recall who it was against) saw the entire Portland Trail Blazers team wearing headbands. The whole team. As in, "Arvydas Sabonis and Detlef Schrempf were wearing headbands." 

A few years ago, the NBA got wise. They're the ones who issue the standard headbands to every team, those heads are prime pieces of advertising real estate, so why not slap an NBA logo on there?

Now, some players just reverse the headband so Jerry West is rubbing up against their head, and nobody can see the logo. But these players? Nah. They stick it to the man. They wear the logo upside-down. Night in, and night out.

Stay strong. 

So here it is: NBA players who wearing their headbands upside down, to stick it to the man:

Rajon Rondo
Chris Wilcox
Marcus Williams
Mikki Moore
J.R. Smith
Ben Wallace (for one half of a game, anyway, a few weeks ago. I think he was confused.)
