Since his broken nose, concussion from the All-Star Game, Kobe Bryant has been wearing a protective mask during games. But according to Larry Brown Sports, Bryant has decided to go away from the clear mask and go for the Batman look. (He only wore it for one quarter for the game against Detroit before going back to his old mask.)
I had always thought that the masks had to be clear, but apparently it’s OK to have a black one. I am just afraid that if the league starts giving more leeway to these kinds of things, then these masks will start featuring company logos.
I know for sure that these protective equipment can’t be used as a fashion statement. Dwyane Wade was already used as an example of this.
