    Rockets have sold their soul to China and will pander to them before even thinking about repping the city they actually reside in...

    Excellent, we’re one step closer to partnering with some dragon ball z stuff!

    Let's be real here. That crapy ROKiT jersey patch? The China themed alternate jerseys?

    // They make money.
    // Money helps pay the Luxury Tax
    // Paying the Luxury Tax for good players help the team.
    // Just cost of doing business.

    Also, don't get caught up in the CITY name for those jerseys. The REAL CITY jerseys are the BLACK ones. BUT, for the Rockets to wear the BLACK ones "right away" they have to "name them" the STATEMENT JERSEY. (leaving the China ones as the CITY Jersey).

    It is just semantics to allow the team to wear the black ones right away when they have to "wait" on the CITY ones down the road.

    As far as the China jerseys go, I find these interesting. I like the change of pace color scheme. I reserve total judgement until I see them on the players and on the court in a basketball setting.

    Let me be clear. I don’t care about the city angle, those are horrible uniforms. Thus, I hate them.

    And why are there clouds? What kind of clouds are those? I’ve never seen any like that. Perhaps cumulospermus?

    Those are atrocious.

    I refuse to believe that Nike is putting out anything that looks like that.

    For the most part, Nike just prints want we send them. If Champion was the supplier, the colors, fonts and graphics would look the same.

    This is so embarrassing. Why can't we have a normal city edition jersey like other teams?

    Because they have more fans in China that contribute more money than fans here.

    Lets fill up the lower bowl before we start asking for jerseys.

    You do. It is the Black "HOUSTON" jerseys.

    Think of it like this

    CITY = Black "Houston" jersey
    STATEMENT = Win "Chinese" jersey

    Wouldn’t mind rotating them in. It’s the fact that we don’t have a throwback mustard and ketchup jersey, because we have these instead that is lame. Also, I wouldn’t mind a Houston Strong themed city jersey. Again, if these jerseys were a bonus on top of those, I wouldn’t care.

    The problem isn't only that they are chinese. We are used to that BS.
    The problem is that they SUCK. They are so ugly that I am doubting if this is real.

    What was the inspiration? The chinese wedding dress? Or a chinese table runner?
    We are lucky it didn't come with gold tassels!

    For the love of all that’s good, Tilman’s Kids, where you at? Get us some proper jerseys. Let’s not forget who built this city. Make some gawdamn championship era jerseys already.
