    I get that a lot of people like where they live but at the end of the day who gives a crap whether the Rockets have a landmark of Houston on their jersey?

    I'm absolutely feeling that Harden NASA suit. Houston text in that typeface, some clean trim. That would be nice.

    This is where I'm at a disadvantage. Not really a Houston guy and would never have the time to research what would go into a unique city uni. I know NASA and Treasures lol

    Did these recently if only to see how that retro type and drop shadowing would look.

    Regardless of what is technically the city jersey, obviously many of us would like a rockets jersey that reps Houston specifically. As other people have mentioned, the iconic h inside the star, or a baby blue jersey, or (my favorite) purple with some Johnny Dang image would be amazing. I assume they would never make the third, and maybe kids these days wouldn’t understand the baby blue, but the first would work great if licensing could be figured out.

    F'ing disgusting that our "CITY" jerseys are CHINESE jerseys. I mean, WTF?

    We better be making money with those atrocities. Money to pay off luxury taxes and buy draft picks.

    Would love the Calvin/Rudy T era Red with lots of gold as a statement, with association and icon being Hakeem championship days with minimal gold trim. A city jersey with the oilers/city flag colors. I think primary white would look clean with the wordmark in a NASA like font in red. Luv Ya Blue trim. City Flag badge on the opposite side of the stupid rockit badge-probably would never happen but instead of houston flag-would be cool to have a flag for the players nationality like on astronaut suits so Zhou can have his Chinese flag on his for that China money. Nene with his Brazil flag and Clint of course with his Switzerland flag and Jimmy Butler with his Tomball flag

    Im amazed people still dont understand what the Rockets did. The black uniforms with the Rocket print on the side is basically the City Uniform representing Houston. They did it that way so they could wear it all the time. The actual City uniforms can only we worn a couple times a year. Fegan even came out and mentioned this last year.

    There it is. I don't hate the gold and the little details. I don't love the jersey at all, but it's not just the text slapped on like it normally is.

    Cartoon Rocket making the comeback too hehe

    I’m not big on our Chinese units because they basically ripped rockets off of it and slapped Chinese lettering. But they actually did something with it for once.

    Dildos must be flying in those makers' heads. Quit thinking about seksey toys.

    I don't live in Houston so don't slam me. But is there any other reason that we embrace chinesse everything besides Yao && $$ that come from Asia from that regard? Like Houston has big asian minorities?

    Can't answer your question fully but it should be about sponsoring and good networking.

    Rockets maintain the best path to the Chinese market.
