    I'm surprised the bulls are in the top 3. It's been like 20 years since they did something consistently interesting.

    A recognizable brand/logo with good colors, and a storied past will do that.

    That's more to do with how ugly our uniforms are to wear. I'm sure hes only even 10th bc of the black jerseys.

    Rockets are in desperate need of a rebranding

    Can we focus on a red, white, and yellow color scheme and just get rid of the gray altogether?

    Yes part of the people who buy these jerseys are for fashion reasons
    Ever since Les changed the logo from the championship era, the Rockets have had the worst uniforms

    Sadly , it also show she Harden just isn't as likable as many of us would like to think. Sorry but Les branding or not, Houston & Harden have had many "National Television" opportunities.. the kids but who they like

    Willing to bet a breanding advisor would probably tell Harden that insisting on wearing the #13 will probablyhurt his jersey sells, and pretty sure he wouldn't care. Paul George sells suck too, right? Notice Lakers talked Nash into switching to #10.

    I wonder how high Nash #13 sells got in his MVP years.

    Anyone know

    If our uniforms weren't disgustingly terrible he'd be top 5.
