The NBA Has Banned the Wearing of Upside Down Headbands
The most rabid Celtics has probably noticed that Rajon Rondo wasn’t wearing a headband on Tuesday night when the Celtics played the Heat or on Wednesday night when they took on the Cavs. However, even the most die-hard fan may not have noticed that he’s been wearing the headband upside down for the past few years — if you even want to call it that. You can’t really wear a headband upside down considering its a simple loop, but Rondo and a few other players have always opted to wear them with the logo facing upside down.
Who gives a rat’s a**, right? Apparently it’s a big deal to the NBA. Rondo has opted for the the no headband look this season because the league has asked him and all other players not to wear it with the logo facing upside down. Good call by the NBA. Everyone knows an upside down NBA logo is a notorious gang symbol. Cripps wear blue. Bloods wear red. All the other guys sport headbands with an upside down logo.
