The NBA has banned upside down headbands

Because, yes, the NBA has banned upside-down headbands.

How can you tell it's an upside-down headband? Well, about a decade ago, when headbands were starting to come back into vogue after a 20-year or so absence, the NBA decided to cash in, and replace all the team-issued headbands they provided free of charge to their players, with a version that featured the famous NBA logo on top of the team colors. And you had to wear the logo'd version, for fear of a fine. Rasheed Wallace(notes) took it to the man by turning his headband inside-out, but the league came down on that, so Rasheed stopped.
We didn't really hear a peep about the logo'd headbands for a few years after that, until 2007, when it became obvious that quite a few players were following Rondo's example and turning the logo upside down
