    Why wait a year to change the cut of the jersey?

    Ugh. Sleeves, and no new primary uniforms until at least '17-'18?

    Thanks Clutch! I don't like the Chinese jerseys but it's just short term and it caters to our largest market so I understand. Sorry if I missed it in the article, but are the Rockets gonna keep the current alternates? That is the one jersey I like (Although the new cuts will make our primary jerseys a lot better)

    Yeah, that is kind of lame. The jersey terms between team, the NBA and Adidas (?) must be ridiculous to navigate. That or the Rockets just aren't really trying very hard.

    It is kind of irritating seeing how teams come up with new or alternate uniforms every year, and we seem to stay put.

    Adidas made those Christmas jerseys for every team because they didn't know who was going to be playing on Christmas Day.

    Since the Rockets aren't playing on Christmas Day, they won't use them.

    I'm not talking about the Christmas one, there was a new alternate jersey listed in the Adidas catalog but there wasn't a picture yet.

    The jersey is sleeved with four Mandarin characters on the front replacing the word “Rockets”.

    rockets = 2 mandarin characters
    so what are those four characters?
    xin nian kuai le?
    gong xi fa cai?
