The NBA won’t allow players to wear “ninja-style headwear” this season. Several players — including the Miami Heat’s Jimmy Butler, the New Orleans Pelicans’ Jrue Holiday, the LA Clippers’ Montrezl Harrell, the Minnesota Timberwolves’ Karl-Anthony Towns and the Brooklyn Nets’ Jarrett Allen — regularly wore the headgear a season ago.

Specifically, Allen said, he’s been working on his 3-point shooting. After hitting 5-of-15 his rookie year, Allen regressed quite a bit last season, hitting only 6-of-45, a mere 13 percent. He expect to improve this year and expects that will help him get minutes not just at the 5, but the 4, too. “Definitely been shooting more this summer,” said of his 3-point shooting. “I’ve always been saying the game has been expanding to the 3-point line, so I have to stay ready for anything they throw at me. I don’t know what it’s going to come down to, or the coach’s system, but for me, I’m preparing to play the 4 or the 5. It’s interchangeable for us. But I’m ready to play whatever they throw at me.”
Although Jordan has started every game he’s played in since 2011, Atkinson has said Jordan has told him he’s ready to assume whatever role the head coach lays out for him. So be prepared for a lot of new and interesting line-ups and rotations … and comments about how winning is all that matters. But at one point out in Las Vegas, Allen made it clear that he wants to be on the court when the ball goes up. “Everybody wants to start, but in this case, it doesn’t matter to me,” Allen said, then added. “F*ck it, yeah, I want to start. F*ck it.”
