The NBA uniform policy doesn't leave much room to the imagination; like most pro sports, the most customizable part of a basketball uniform is the logo a player wears on his sneakers. That leaves players customization options to hair, varying types of sweat bands and tattoos.
Julian Wright, meanwhile, wears high socks. He did so all of last season, all throughout college and even through high school. So adamant is Wright, that he's been known to wear high socks even when they don't match his uniform (see above). That, my friends, is dedication. Surely there's some really cool story about why Ju-Ju started wearing the socks maybe a vague NBA player Wright admired as a kid wore them and it inspired him to do the same?
"Naw, I just started doing it back in middle school," he said. "Just something to be different."
What? No defining moment? No irrationally superstions? No "our high school gym didn't have heating and I wanted to keep my legs warm" anecdote?
"Actually, I sweat too much," he said. "They probably don't help that."
So yea. Big breaking news on the blog front: Players Wears High Socks Just Because; Blogger Has Exestential Breakdown.
