It actually coined a phrase when General Motors started a new trend 63 years ago in 1954 with the Cadillac, Buick and Oldsmobile -- major automotive styling changes every three years. The following year, Pontiac and Chevy joined the party, as well as Ford Motor Company and Chrysler Corporation's "Forward Look". Yup, the wrap around front windshield started it. A few years later, Chrysler Corp. even came out with the wrap around and wrap over the top windshield. Then fender fins. Then ultimately, moved on. Thanks to the preponderance of a TV in every home starting six years earlier and its stream of advertising, people, most of whom couldn't afford it, had to be seen in the new style upgrades. And buying on credit mushroomed. Purchasing something you can't afford with money you don't have to be in vogue. NBA uniform designs are small potatoes compared to the changes in telephones, computers refrigerators, cars, etc. As Ralph Nader labeled it, planned obsolescence!
