    Something from Houston to be proud of that people around the country may be generally aware of and like about the city?

    Put an Astros logo.

    Columbia blue, red and white would be an instant "Houston" identifier to folks outside of the city limits if done properly. Incorporating "Luv Ya" in there somewhere would be awesome.

    Don’t get mad but this is the 2019-2020 Rockets City Jersey. Sources confirming Rockets want to start selling Hookah in the stadium.

    C'mon man. Don't try to obfuscate and over-complicate something simple.

    The statement jersey is a statement jersey. Many teams wear their statement jerseys a lot.
    https://news.nike.com/news/nba-statement-uniforms
    "The Statement Edition uniform sets the tone for big games or rivalries and is inspired by the team's desire to make a bold statement every time they step on the court. For each team, the aesthetic expresses the specific spirit of the current roster."

    The city jersey is a city jersey.
    https://news.nike.com/news/nike-nba-city-edition-uniform
    "The Nike NBA City Edition uniforms represent insights and emotion from the court to the upper deck to the cities’ streets, in pursuit of a unique way to capture each team and its city in a way that respects the past and present of the clubs"
    (Brooklyn - bridge inspired. OKC - native american inspired. Wolves - Prince inspired. Bulls - flag inspired. Denver - skyline inspired. Detroit - automotive inspired. Philly - history inspired.)

    Charlotte - Orlando - Houston? Garbage. The Warriors included chinese lettering and influence as elements of the design. They didn't just throw chinese letters on there and call it the design for the whole city.

    Verdict: Rockets city jerseys are stupid

    Silver Lining: The cloud details throughout the jersey is kind of cool

    Someone from the organization should do a poll of people around the country to determine what is most recognizable about Houston. I'd guess NASA would be the winner. Chinese letters have nothing to do with Houston. It's just pure marketing.

    Regardless of "names" the Rockets like the black jersey the best, and did what they had to do, to make it available to them to start the season.

    Facts.

    Rockets jersey are laughably bad.
    I am sure the organization will continue to find pollsters that say otherwise.
    It shouldn't be surprising that their "special" jerseys also suck.

    They are the "will they win a championship in my lifetime" question for the team... since they've already won a championship in my lifetime.

    Black and red are the colors of the Portland trailblazers
    Red and yellow are the true and pure colors of the Houston Rockets

    I'm riding with @Deuce on this one. Everyone is in agreement that the black jersey is good. If you want it to be the city jersey, we will never see them wear it.

    About the Chinese jerseys. I never liked ours. I like Golden State Warriors, I like the Raptors, and Wizards. These, I actually like. Ours always sucked. They should allow us to have a fifth jersey. You either pick Chinese New Years, or Hispanic heritage, and put "LOS" on everything. You guys get too uptight over branding names.

    Well, they were called the Rockets because of San Diego's missile program or some ****. They got lucky it still fit in Houston. Looking at you Utah Jazz, Los Angeles Lakers, and at a time, Tennessee Oilers.
