    Ironically, I think a lot of people who aren't Rockets fans actually like our jerseys.

    Agree to disagree. I've seen quite a few people on r/NBA saying they really liked it. I don't like them, but hey to each their own.

    I actually like our normal jerseys and logo unlike most of you here, but absolutely hate this Chinese font ones. Nothing unique at all.

    One of the few uniforms where they took a risk and it paid off.

    Who the hell at Nike is color blind and designing all these grey jerseys?

    Cavs have been wearing their atrocious grey all week and tonight Spurs vs. Warriors was entirely unwatchable. Definitely the worst trend in jerseys this year. Thank god Rockets got rid of their grey unis from last year!

    Nike really dropped the ball with the jerseys this year. Pair them with the obnoxious advertisements (that will only get larger and duplicate in the next couple of years because of Adam $ilver) and it makes a lot of games a true eyesore to watch.

    Adidas, minus the ridiculous sleeve trend, did it way better.

    I guess. I won't complain, because I know it's just money grab for Nike/NBA to sell more expensive jersey.

    The LeBron extreme makeover.

    Nike was probably working on this for a year now. They went from the putrid Lonzo banana yellow back to a classic showtime look just for the King. And here we have the Rockets still stuck with Chinese takeout box look forever. :(

    I guess we'll be seeing that version of the first jersey, in a third-world country or at some local thrift store.

    I'm no fan of the Lakers (maybe my Laker hatred will come out of hibernation this year), but their banana yellow jerseys last year were atrocious. I can't believe anybody signed off on those, internally or externally.
