Last season in the NBA there was a huge explosion of a new style of headband that many dubbed “the ninja”. Players like Maurice Harkless and Jimmy Butler pioneered the new look, one which was a fresh addition to the increasingly more restrictive NBA on-court look.

But now the NBA will reportedly no longer allow the ninja style headbands starting in 2019-20.

Philadelphia 76ers forward Mike Scott was one of the first people to make mention of the new ban on Twitter.
