All your examples (SCORECARD, Nov. 5) are of teams that changed their uniforms and experienced better days. The Houston Rockets, a team that won consecutive NBA championships, in 1994 and '95, and promptly traded in its traditional—albeit ugly—uniforms for silly-looking pinstriped jammies, haven't had a whiff of the Finals since.

In the early 1990s the Pittsburgh Penguins won back-to-back championships and then before the 1992-93 season changed their uniforms and logo (probably to gain revenue). Since the Penguins made that change, Lord Stanley has not come back to Pittsburgh.
