This is one of my latest designs, proposal for Nike.
This project seems interesting, to apply to basketball. Inspired players requiring additional protection, and compression at the ankles, I was thinking light heavyweight players, as were Karl Malone, Barkley, Rodman, but very defensive: Pippen, Payton, Big Ben. Old school. Inspired in constrictor snake, I make the analogy about defensive player that retrieves a divided and contested ball, wrap the ball in his arms to protect it by applying a constriction.
