It is only natural that you take your basketball jersey for granted and you do not pay enough attention to it. However, if you let this way of thinking dwell for too long on your mind, the result could be disastrous in the end. And it is completely understandable if you think that this is just some sort of an exaggeration. There is no way a jersey could impact on a game in a way that big. After all, it is just a sportswear; there could be nothing monumentally wrong just by you getting something entirely wrong. On the contrary, though, this is how most disasters happen: You overlook even the tiniest factors only for them to grow bigger and bigger to a point where the whole thing is simply too much to be mitigated. So, how could something as simple as picking a wrong jersey could be the beginning of failure? It all begins with the material used to make the jersey in the first place. A jersey is not all that different from other pieces of clothing: Correct material gives raise to improved comfort. And comfort definitely leads to optimum results in pretty much all kind of cases.
If you are making your own sportswear, make sure that the jersey maker you consult with is capable of delivering the product made using materials that guarantee you utmost comfort. The resulting jersey must never be too hot on your body when worn and it has great absorption level. This is important as you would be producing gallons of sweats during the game. A jersey that is not capable of absorbing the sweats would tend to leave the perspiration stay on the fabric for far too long. Before long, you would be soaked wet while running and moving around in the field.
While that would not cause you to fall sick (or it could be, depending on tons of factors), it most certainly will give you discomfort. And there is nothing okay when you wear something that only gives you utter discomfort, really. Soaked wet jersey would get in the way and you end up unable to score a perfect point. And we have not even talked about excess heat and increasing body temperature that comes from the overproduction of sweats during the game. Combined, all of these factors will most definitely hinder you from enjoying your time in the field.
