Athletic apparel can help you train for basketball as well. Proper training apparel will help you train more efficiently and effectively. It can also help you play more efficiently.
Perhaps the most important piece of basketball apparel is your basketball shoes. Your feet are the only part of your body constantly touching the floor, and are the base for all of your basketball movements. Because of this,
you should have some supportive, comfortable shoes. This, along with the mental factor of "It's Gotta be the Shoes," can also help your confidence.
Basketball shoes aren't the only important athletic apparel, though, you also need comfortable shirts and shorts, compression items (to help prevent injury), and any other clothing that you are comfortable training in.
There are quite a few places you can get some high-quality yet relatively inexpensive athletic apparel. I'll also have exclusive discount codes available from time to time for these sports apparel stores.
First will be some athletic apparel suggestions, along with a search box that includes NBAStore.com, SportsAuthority.com, and DicksSportingGoods.com. You can compare the prices all here. You can also get discounts each month through BBT&T.
Then are all of the discount codes and links to additional sports apparel stores like Champs Sports, Eastbay.com and Foot Locker. Unfortunately these other retailers don't have the same programs available to include in the product search boxes.
Add this page to your Favorites or Bookmark it. New discount codes are added constantly.

Athletic Apparel Items/Search Boxes
Basketball Shoes or Training Shoes (or Both)
As I mentioned earlier, shoes may be the most important piece of training equipment you own, your feet are constantly pounding the ground whether you're running or doing jumping exercises. I'll have a whole section on basketball shoes in the future, for now search for your favorites to compare prices.
Also make sure to check out Champs Sports for Jordan brand shoes, especially the Trunner or Black Cat Trainer. Make sure to check out their discount codes below!
Don't think I need to really explain this. Shorts are just easier to train in if it's not too cold out.
Compression shorts and compression shirts can help keep you cool in warm weather and warm in cold weather. They also help to prevent injuries, especially those with strategically placed padding for extra protection in physical sports like basketball. Search for McDavid HexPad.
I'm not exactly sure what to call this. Dry-fit clothing that pulls moisture away from your body. This can also help keep you cooler, in turn allowing you to push yourself harder during your training.
Sports Apparel Stores and Discounts
Basketball Express is a great store with all kinds of athletic apparel for your basketball training needs, as well as fan gear and other basketball training items. They carry all of the major brands like Nike, Adidas, Reebok and Under Armour, as well as Wilson and Spalding and so much more! All kinds of additional items like shooting sleeves and protective compression shorts. They also have team ordering discounts and all kinds of team gear like reversible jerseys and reversible shorts.
This less-known gem is my new favorite! Check out all of their great training gear.
Champs Sports is my friend's son's favorite store to get clothes, especially for sports. It has a great selection of name brands: Nike, Jordan, Reebok, Adidas, and Converse come to mind. Champs always has the newest Jordan brand items and a large selection of anything Jordan, even the older stuff. They also have new basketball items and promotions going on constantly.

Sports Authority has a ton of apparel, and I like how easy their site is to navigate. It's very easy to find what you're looking for, like shoes, shorts, dry gear, and more! Carries Nike, Adidas, and Under Armour. Get the BBT&T discount just by clicking from my site.
No current discounts, but check back soon!
Final-Score.com is actually the clearance site of EastBay and Eastbay.com.
What this means is that EastBay is clearing out older stock to make room for the newest gear. However, you can still get brand-new training gear from Nike, Jordan, Adidas, Reebok, Under Armour, and more! I've even seen new basketball shoes for as low as $9.99. The only drawback is that the stock is limited, so once it's sold, there will be no re-stock (so you have to act fairly fast), and you have to spend a little more time to find the right size. The savings are so good, though, it's worth the few extra minutes. Definitely take a look!
No additional discounts currently available. But Everything still on Clearance!
Champion Sports obviously only has Champion gear, so it doesn't have as wide of selection in regards to brand names, but it still has a great selection of athletic apparel. What's more, because it isn't the "Huge" names, it's more affordable and still quality apparel. Men's, women's, and children's athletic apparel at great prices. Champion has pretty much everything but shoes: dry-fit shirts, sports bras, shorts, etc.
Free Shipping on Orders of $125+ Online.
