Today I’m going to show you the accessories
that are needed to perform in basketball. This fellow right here, has on a shirt–T-shirt,
tank top, so he can–more range on his jump shot. He also has on shorts. Very important
when you’re playing basketball. Shorten your draw string if you have one of these–draw
string for your shorts, make sure you keep them up tight. That’s the purpose of that.
Then, he has on knee high socks. Now that’s a trend these days. Some guys have them, make
them high, some guys keep them low. But most importantly, when playing basketball, it’s
very important that you have on high top sneakers. And for his safety, he has them tied up to
the top, very tight, and he also has a supporting strap. Can you turn to the side for us, sir?
All right, this is where the elastic on the shoe snaps in, gives this ankle the support
you need to make the cuts that are important in defense and offense. And once again, another
trend that guys wear today is the band. I also have one on, you see. This right here,
is what you call a wrist band. This wrist band is for wiping your sweat off as you play.
And I have on a headband. This keeps the sweat out of your eyes. Most importantly, the second
or the last thing that you would need, is a basketball. This basketball right here is
an indoor/outdoor. And what that means is you can play on the concrete like we’re here
today, or inside on the hardwood floor. And today I showed you how–I mean, what you need,
the accessories, to play basketball.
