The NBA’s decision to allow players to wear headgear during the game has sparked criticism from players, coaches and players’ rights groups.
The NBA has a long history of allowing athletes to wear their headgear for games, and it’s been a policy in the past that has been extended to all teams.
The league has made the decision to expand that policy to include all players, league spokesman Tim Frank told ABC News on Tuesday.
The league announced its new policy on Monday in a statement that said players’ heads will no longer be covered during games, but they will have to be in an open space or have an open headgear to protect their eyes.
“The NBA’s rules for all fans, players, staff and media are clear, the players’ union will continue to work with the league and the players on these issues,” the statement said.
“The players want the policy changed, but we respect their right to make their own decisions about how they want to play their sport.”
While headgear is a relatively new policy in professional sports, it has been in place for decades, dating back to the 1950s.
In fact, there are two NFL rules about headgear that go back to 1920, the NFL said in the statement.
It said the rules allow players with helmets and gloves to use their heads, but that they are not allowed to put them on during a play.
The rules also state that players cannot wear face shields.
While the NFL says the new policy is meant to protect players’ eyes, it also says it is designed to protect other players’ safety.
The NFL also says players who have been hit by balls and are unable to get to the ball are still allowed to use helmets and protect themselves.
The NFL said it has not changed its policy on helmets for headgear.
It has also said it will continue with its current policy that allows players to use headgear as long as they are wearing it.
The issue of how to wear helmets has been a contentious one for decades.
The NBA has faced widespread criticism from the public for not allowing players to cover their heads during games.
A league study last year found that only 10 percent of players who had helmets were able to stop a hit by a hit or collision, the study said.
Other major professional sports leagues have also recently come out against the NFL’s decision.
