CBS Sports - In multibillion-dollar business of NBA, sleep is the biggest debt
The worst sleep LeBron James has ever had in his 13 years in the NBA was in the aftermath of the 2011 Finals. James had joined Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami to form a super team that was destined to win "not one, not two, not three ..." championships, and so on. It was going to be "easy," LeBron said. But on their first try against the Dallas Mavericks, the Big Three swung ... and missed. "I just felt like sleep wasn't important and the only thing that mattered to me was how I was going to try to get back up there and win," James told CBS Sports. "It was very difficult to get sleep, because my mind was racing so much that it didn't allow me to go at ease.

Wareable - How Wearable Sensors Could Strike Out Injuries in US Pro Sports
Perhaps more than any other sport in the United States, baseball bleeds nostalgia. Its enduring traditions of red brick ballparks, hotdog stands and uniforms barely befitting an athletic contest, are one of the last unfettered images of true Americana. As such any change, especially technological, comes slowly and reluctantly. However, revolution only ever comes when the need is most dire. And, from Little League to the Majors, America's Pastime is currently plagued with an injury epidemic habitually robbing the game its most talented performers.
Fast Company - How To Design A Wearable For LeBron James
Designing a wearable for elite athletes like LeBron James is no small feat. The Cleveland Cavaliers forward needs the ability to precisely measure his performance on and off the court, share that data with his coaches and trainers, and visualize it to make sense of everything—all at an extreme level of detail that would be overkill for regular users. That requires a wearable he can wear literally 24/7—one that's lighter, more accurate, and fits better than any other wearable on the market. So James doesn't wear an Apple Watch, a Nike FuelBand, or a Fitbit. He wears a Whoop, a wearable aimed at helping athletes track their progress as well as predict their future performance.

Boston Herald - Activity monitor co. cries foul over NBA ban
The CEO of a company that makes a fitness activity monitor is defending his wristband and the elite athletes who use it after the NBA said one player could not wear it during games. “We strive to empower athletes continuously. Monitoring strain during games is one piece of that equation and we look forward to working with all the professional leagues to empower athletes to better understand their bodies,” said Will Ahmed, chief executive of WHOOP. “Let’s not deprive athletes of in-game analysis. It’s their careers at stake and data is not steroids.”
ESPN - NBA union, wearable tech company Whoop to meet Tuesday
Wearable tech being allowed in NBA games is inching closer to becoming a reality. According to league sources, the NBA players' union will be meeting Tuesday with Whoop, a wearable tech company that recently made headlines after Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Matthew Dellavedova illegally wore its biotracker wristband in games during almost all of March.
BostInno - Whoop’s CEO on Wearables Ban: “Let’s Not Deprive Athletes”
The NBA has had a longstanding ban on wearables for basketball players during games, but apparently Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Matthew Dellavedova didn’t get the memo. Dellavedova had been using a wearable activity tracker made by Boston sports tech startup Whoop during several games for most of March, as ESPN reported Wednesday. After taking notice of the small band wrapped around his wrist, the NBA reminded him of the league’s ban and told him he couldn’t wear the startup’s synonymous device, the Whoop, during games.
