Return of the flying what?

Next season, like ghosts of fashion failures past, some of the worst uniforms ever worn, will make their return.

The Rockets’ pajamas get ups – and they have been called much worse – will serve as throw-back uniforms, which come to think of it, looks like a misspelling of throw up uniforms.

Does that mean we're getting the number 1 draft pick again? Yay.

I'd prefer they did it during this abortion of a season instead of besmirching the hope of next season.

I like throwbacks. Period. I'm tired of being a franchise that got away from it's original roots. The orbital R logo needs to go.

I feel bad for Kyle Lowry. As if "rebuilding" isn't bad enough, they're gonna put a flying shark dildo on his chest.

The white home jerseys were ok IMO, it was the dark blue away ones that made me sick. The tv intro was cool for those teams though. The Rocket would chase the other team's spaceship until it crashed at the last second. I'll find it on youtube.

Damn, ****ing Rockets marketing. Why haven't they fired the whole staff there yet? The **** they display at Toyota Center is embarrassing.
