Will Houston Be Changing Their Jerseys Soon?

That's my guess, because apparently everyone in China already has a Yao Ming jersey.

Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers has taken over as the top selling NBA jersey in China. Bryant, who also has the top selling jersey in the U.S. this year, was ranked fourth last season in China.

Bryant is followed by Denver Nuggets guard Allen Iverson and Houston Rockets guard Tracy McGrady, who visited China this summer with adidas. Rounding out the top five is Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat and LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers, both of whom also visited China this past summer as part of USA Basketball's Senior National Team training. China's Yao Ming, from the Houston Rockets, ranks sixth on the list, down from third last year.
Come to think of it, randomly changing his number could get him back in the top five too.
