    Interesting story, here: https://houston.sportsmap.com/an-appreciation-of-the-2019-20-houston-rockets-uniforms

    There was one quote that caught my eye:

    Could be nothing. They likely consider *everything*. But I think they would sell well, and I could see Fertitta doing anything that equates to a cash grab.

    I’d be all in. I love those uniforms. Not as much as our classics but those are great.

    fck the blue, just bring back the ketchup and mustard permanently

    I tried to get me one, and it’s been sold out for a minute...the demand is high...all the other jerseys are garbage or not worthy of spending any money on

    Horrible idea. Those were the dark times as Rocket fans. The Kelvin Cato era

    Those are associated with a lot of losing, not red, and ugly af. Hell no

    If they must, only as a 1 year alternate

    Way to ruin my Christmas. Those things will never be popular, but they are loud and crass. Sort of like the current owner.

    It would always be a one year thing, with a nice tweak it could work as space city edition.

    Ditch the new uniforms, make ketchup and mustard our defaults, and throw in the pinstripes as alternates for the lols.

    Those uniforms kind of fit the younger generation of fans and players. I hate them but I'm older. These young guys put on anything and call it "fly". I'm sure that James PJ and Russ will approve looking at some of their pre game get ups. The young fans will probably love them.

    In no universe and in no epoch would that jersey design be "really in".

    They just look too childish to me for grown men to wear with that cartoonish rocket emblem. It was like when the NFL went from realistic looking animals on their helmets to the cartoon looking ones. They just looked less tough.

    Now, if you incorporated today's logo into that style and colors it might be more appealing to me. Now the old ketchup and mustard I wouldn't change at all. That just spells Champions.

    Seriously, it is like the guy from Hilton Furniture owns the Rockets.

    Ownership is constantly finding ways to become even more obnoxious.

    If ownership wants to change the jerseys, go back to the ones in the 80's and early 90's.

    Even coming up with a new design would be stupid because over the last 25 years we have had 3 different major design differences.... just makes us look like we are not a classic design or historic franchise.

    Bring back the mustard and catsup jersey and no, don't modify....... or just incorporate the Landry's logo like you wanted to and we can all stop talking about it.

    The current jerseys are in the bottom 25% and the ones before that were arguably the worst in the league.

    Rockets should just replace their basic white jersey with the City version permanently.

    The new basic white sucks.

    And would not mind seeing a version of the pajama jerseys, we could all be pleasantly surprised.
