    Looks like 3 loaded tampons laid across the ball.

    Perhaps it's just the nostalgia of it, but I really liked it, too. I was in elementary school when they had that court.

    I like it too.

    It looks super tacky, cartoonish, and silly. But I still like it in a secretive kind of way.

    However, that color scheme just isn't the Rockets.

    Someone mentioned, in another thread, the new designs would be presented this month, right? They got an email or something? Anyone remember the date?

    I didn't mean it in a bad way. I was just being informative.

    The flying shark dildo design is something I feel works well as some sort of alternate, but not good as the main jersey. The main problem is that I kept noticing it. In that I feel the current design is at least inconspicuous, which is how I like my jerseys anyway. Still, it’s quite fun and I definitely didn’t hate it.

    Yes and some other alternate jerseys....someone said they would be unveiled this month. The designs have been posted, but this was suppose to be a team event for the media.

    Well, Les Alexander has become synonymous with NOT going thru the Draft!

    We have not won the championship since Les ditched the championship jerseys. I think its time to go back to those jerseys. But keep those black jerseys. Also make some grey and then make some blue ones.

    I don't see the Rockets black jerseys going anywhere. In fact they have double downed on them. The black and the neon red stuff. Tilman always wears black. He clearly like the black jersey look. I think they look great myself.

    I also think the new *Houston* red jerseys look sharp. Notable that for the majority of the playoffs the Rockets ditched their regular Red & White jerseys for the Black and HoustonRed jerseys that sport the *larger font* "Houston" on them. That's the tell of where the the jersey adjustment is going.

    True, but its still fresh though. But the main points get the championship jerseys back. I bet we would win it all in those jerseys.
