What did women basketball players wear in 1912?
long black skirts and plaid overalls
Of course you can! Many basketball players - mostly girls and women - wear the knee pads to protect their knees from injury, scrapes and bruises encountered during the game! The game of basketball is fast and rough, so you fall onto the basketball court many times and you may hurt or scrape up your knees!
If they have big junk I think that most basketball players just wear a regular kind of a jockstrap without a cup. However, some high school basketball players wear a cup because they are concerned about getting hit in their sensitive area. When I played basketball in my teens, a couple of the guys on our team awlays wore a cup.
