Well, that's obviously a form reply to a question you didn't actually ask. They seem to be under the impression you were trying to place an order via email, instead of asking about the availability of specific merchandise.

As far as why they don't sell G League jerseys, I'd assume it's because players generally don't actually sign contracts with individual teams, but with the league itself. Without long-term contracts, there's probably less incentive to sell merchandise like that.

You could try calling their toll-free number in hope of talking to an actual person instead of getting a form reply from Rachel.

My question

Subject : Why don't you sell Jerseys?

I'm interested in buying official jerseys but all I see are these tram branded T-Shirts. Why is this?

Yes, and a robot saw "I'm interested in buying" and sent out an automatic reply. No human ever saw your email.

Hmm, when I sent an email to the league for All-star game suggestions :lol: of course I got a response that was mostly canned, but I think there were a couple points where I felt that someone read my message. In the first sentence they referenced my "suggestion for NBA All-Star"
The rest of it's probably a copy/paste response.

I am still waiting for the legendary Kendrick Perkins G-League jersey to be available.

Its a must-have.

The only love I have for Thabeet is related to his dominance in the older NBA 2K games when he was in the league.

Getting Thabeet at the end of a fantasy draft? Sign me up. One thing about the older 2ks, if you were really tall, you would be deadly.
