    Looks pretty good!

    So, two Mandarin characters not four, right?

    Also, don't we have a "Los Rockets" jersey this year?
    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't remember having a different jersey for "Noche Latina", prior to this year.

    It's always been described as a Chinese-inspired design, by fans and the media. Maybe it's just an assumption, but it does seem to fit, doesn't it?

    Like i said, I think it's fine for them to do stuff for them as well, but i just think the local fans should be their priority. It feels the other way around, like their long time fans are the Asian fans and they are just throwing us local fans a bone by wearing some ketchup and mustard alternates a few times a year(referring to uniform design only).

    They got Dwight's number wrong. Unless that's the Chinese number for 12.

    I do like the jersey though...but why are the numbers white in that picture and yellow in the rear jersey view Clutch originally had? Just the lighting?

    The "original" photo in the story was just a generic "jersey news" photo. It was a close-up picture of the current alternate.

    The look on Howard's face pretty much says it all. Uhmmmm. Ok?

    Dwight actually loves it. Fit-wise anyway.

    Ah, ok. I never realized that was the texture of the material of the alternates.

    If you look closely, the second Mandarin character is stylized to resemble the rockets logo.

    very nice. i would have loved them more if the lettering was glorious dark yellow manifesting a sunset for our beloved comrades in the east.
