NBA players are quite good at starting fads.  From their shoes to headbands to finger sleeves to any other accessory you can think of, they make simple things look cool on the court.  One trend was the “baller bands” that became much more prominent during the 2000 Sydney Olympics when Team USA had regular rubber bands around their wrists.  From there, an invention would transform how these “baller bands” are perceived.  In particular, the Power Balance rubber bracelets that numerous NBA players wear.  One highly critical person that is not fond of these bracelets is Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban. Cuban can be seen as throwing away an entire display box of these Power Balance bracelets.  He said, See this stuff?  It ws a scam when they were on “Shark Tank”.  It’s still a scam.  I don’t care if the NBA was dumb enough to sign an agreement.  This is where it belongs. According to Mark Cuban, he does not allow the bracelet in the Mavericks locker room. The bracelets are made out of rubber and have a little hologram sticker  inserted.  The company says that the hologram provides balance and strength.  For those that are wondering, check your wallet for your debit or credit card.  That is a hologram sticker.  Does that give you any sense of good health and balance?  Mark Cuban is speaking the truth on this one.  And as a side note, Power Balance went bankrupt a few years ago.
