    basketball and sweaty hands

    I made my rec league basketball debut last night after a 2+ year absence from the game.

    Big problem, my palms sweat more than the average guy, I think, and I had trouble with my hands.

    Is the chalk that NBA players use the same as the chalk weight lifters use?

    I imagine theyre close, if not the same.

    They both do essentially the same thing, enhance grip (or reduce slippage).

    I'd say give it a go at a practice on the court, I always like to test out new stuff prior to a game

    What about baby powder does this work just as good?

    Just be careful, some of them seem to be a bit oily. I would stay with the chalk.
