yeaa I play just for fun on the weekends.. I guess I stopped playing fullcourt and Ive been playing halfcourt for too long.. and the fact that I dont workout my legs on the weekdays.. mess me up I guess.. but thanks for the info.. Any particular streches that will help me out?
and I wear mid top shoes..... :|

The shoes really wont matter too much, its just a matter of your calf muscles being much stronger then the muscles on the front of your leg, probably due to not using them often. If you work them out they will get stronger and you wont have this problem. You can do simple exercises such as laying down and pointing your toes up to your head and stretching and flexing the shins upward. This will make them stronger and you wont have this problem.. IF you work out your calves you should work out the shins too because they balance each other out because of one in the front and the other in the back. The same could be said for if you work out your chest you should do your back as well

STRETCH!!! I used to have the same problem until my girl told me I should stretch. I usually spread my legs and touch my toes for about 30 sec, sitting or standing, either way should work, grap your toe and pull your heel back to your butt while standing. There are probably some other stretches you could do, but these short, simple stretches should do a lot in minimizing the pain in your shins.

First stretch, second get those leg sleeves like T Mac has, no joke, those sh*ts actually work and they really help for shin splints.

it sounds like shin splints and what everybody has said sounds pretty good but I would suggest strengthing your shins by walking with your toes up, just like your other body parts you have muscles that pulls your toes toward you (shins) and muscles that push your toes away (calves) and with any of your body parts these muscle should be equal because if one muscle is over power the muscle too much it will cause problems, so just strenghten your shins after the pain goes away so this doesn't become a reacurring pain

Rest, stretch and walk on your heels for 10 minutes before any activity. Also at home ice your shins and legs. I had shin splints for 2 years playing high school basketball, and I would have to sit out of practices because the pain would be so intense. Take it easy playing ball for a litlle while til you can build up the stregth in your legs by doing toe ups. You most likely have an imbalance between your calf and shin muscles.

Hope this helps

Peace
Kenji
