  • Evolution of the Basketball Jersey
    Believe it or not , the first of the so-called basketball jerseys are knitted wool tunics which are close fitting and buttoned at the crotch, generally for the purpose of tucking them inside the pants . It was, therefore, a blessing that basketball games during the early years are not as fast-paced and physical as the modern NBA games are. Otherwise, nobody would want to think about the fitting uniforms and the crotch buttons. The use of wool fabric then is also intriguing , but we have to understand that polyester was invented only during the 1940s. As a historical sports trivia, usage of the term jersey in relation to sportswear may be traced as far back as 1836.
