    I'm too short for today's basketball shorts. They look ridiculous on me now.

    I agree that there are a lot of basketball shorts on the market right now that are way too long - Jordan Brand in particular. I like my shorts to come justabout to my knee and I can tolerate shorts that go below the need slightly. Finding shorts that I like fit-wise is sometimes tough because I'm only5'7'. I've had the most success by staying away from shorts that are sold specifically for basketball. I've got some Champion rugby shorts,which I got from Sports Authority, that are a perfect length. I also have some Adidas ClimaCool training shorts that are good too.

    co-sign. I'm 5'8 and almost everything nowdays is unwearable or just looks plain stupid on me. Even regular, plain Nike or Adidas basketball shortsare well below the knee. The only Nike basketball shorts that are a little shorter and work ok for me are the $40 silk screen replicas. And I have a 2 pairsof authentic Bucks shorts that work. One from the couple of years Starter provided the gear and one pair from the Puma years. They are both mid-kneecaplength. Starting with Rbk and now Adidas, NBA authentics are way longer than they were.

    Yeah, I like the more generic type shorts rather than specifically labeled basketball shorts from companies like Jordan Brand or regular Nike. I ain't awoman, MC Hammer, or a clown. BBall shorts should not go down to your calves or ankles. You look like a fool wearing shorts that floppy and long. It's justas bad as those short shorts from the 80s and earlier.

    I have been saying this for a couple years. I wear a sz medium in nike basketball shorts now and they are about an inch longer then I would like. I am 5-11.Five years ago I would get XL, sometimes XXL. In NBA authentic I get a 34 and fit perfect

    1- I will also vouch for the FootLocker mesh shorts. Really the perfect basketball short: pockets, hits just below the knee, not super baggy.

    2- I think aside from length, excessive baggyness is also a problem. Bought some Jordan shorts at an outlet and they are wide enough that I can put both legsinto one leg opening. Way, way too much material there. Same with some Arizona college shorts that I bought.
