In te 05-06 season it became

In te 05-06 season it became a fad and all the players started to wear them so the league mandated that players had to have a medical reason to hear them i.e. hamstring of calf injury. They help keep the extremity warm but are primarily for propioception.

Compression sleeves for the legs

Their main purposes are: calf support, increase in circulation, shin splint relief and decreased muscle fatigue.

Forgive me but

Forgive me but players players cope fairly well without the tights therefore negating any scientific effect they're touted to have. Players over past decades have also been fine, they're an eyesore, unnecessary and another money-maker.

@reeko

Though you are not wrong, they don't really do those things very effectivley. They're primary purpose is psychological. Players think they do those things so they wear them.
