Basketball players wear sleeves on the arm they shoot with so it stays warm. In addition it is an extension of the wrist sweat bands from the old days, keeping the sweat from running down their arm and onto their shooting hand. Keeping their shooting hand dry is important for feel on the ball when passing, dribbling and shooting.
All Of your muscles mainly your arm and lg muscles.

Really doesn't matter which arm you put your shooting sleeve on, although some basketball players like to put it on their right hand if they are right-handed, or thier left if they are left-handed. Try it with both and see.
It's not only a fashion statement. Many NBA players and other professional athletes wear them to improve blood flow and prevent injuries. Many arm sleeves also have pads that protect the player's elbow when an impact occurs.
