Ed. #4- Worst Suns Gear of All Time: Shirtless Majerle Shirt, VOTE!

Hide the hipsters it's time for another edition of the Worst Suns Gear of All Time (WSGOAT).  In case you missed the previous editions check them out >> here, >> here, and ..... >> here.

I must apologize for the large gap between the third and fourth editions.  Not unlike the 2000 presidential election, the results of the last poll sent me into a vomit induced coma of which I have only recently awoke.  What did I miss?  Hey wait a second!  Why is J-Rich wearing a "Carter" jersey and sporting such handsomely chiseled facial hair?

This edition features an amazing piece of Suns history.  Truly a testament just how popular the Suns can be when things are going well.  This T-shirt, circa '91-'93, is part of Dan Majerle's own brand called Thundernine.  A combo of Dan's college nickname and his number, this line featured a calender, shirts, and posters.  While KJ, Hornacek, Chambers, and Barkley all had their own local and national success, none of them had what Thunder Dan had... sex appeal.  Majerle capitalized on this by flipping the script and marketing to the female audience in a sport consisting of mostly male fans.  I can still remember Aqua Net high-banged teenage girls with this shirt tucked into white denim Guess shorts.

While all the Thundernine items might seem silly today, this shirt in particular sticks out the most.  Thunder Dan is seen flexing shirtless with a basketball, radiating with everybody's favorite '90s colors, purple and aqua (Go D'Backs!).  No need to pay for NBA licensing for logos because Majerle is not selling the NBA steak.  He is selling his hairy sizzle chest.  Dan's signature and the basketball are all that is needed to convey his celebrity.  Leaving just a little to the imagination the photo is cropped just above Dan's thunder region.  Perhaps the only NBA player other then MJ to pull off the successful irony of appearing shirtless on a shirt.  Nonetheless, it qualifies as a shameless submission for WSGOAT.  Whatcha think?  VOTE BELOW!!!!!!!
