In a shocking move, the National Basketball Association (NBA) has announced that players will now be required to wear high heels instead of traditional basketball sneakers.
According to league officials, the decision was made to add more glamour and style to the game, and to attract a wider audience of fashion-conscious fans.
Many players and coaches have expressed disbelief and frustration over the new rule, citing safety concerns and the difficulty of playing in high heels. Some have even threatened to boycott the league if the rule is not revoked.
The announcement has also sparked a social media frenzy, with many fans and critics taking to Twitter and other platforms to express their outrage and disbelief.
Despite the backlash, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has defended the decision, stating that it is in line with the league’s efforts to modernize and innovate the sport. “Basketball has always been about pushing boundaries and breaking new ground,” he said in a statement. “And that’s exactly what we’re doing with this exciting new change.”
