What is the advantage of wearing polyester for basketball?

Basketball uniforms are usually made out of polyester. What advantage does polyester have over, say, cotton for playing basketball? I personally did not feel any different whether wearing polyester or cotton.

The reason for using polyester is,

  • Provide support and ventilation.

  • Absorbs water and transfers body perspiration away from the skin.

  • Prevent sweat buildup.

  • Although this material dries quickly, the sweat is expelled onto the
    outer layers of the garment and wind may cause the player to feel
    cold.

  • It is best to wear in hot or humid conditions.
