Rockets fans have varying opinions on the current jersey of the Rockets. There are those who are happy with the current Rockets jerseys and others who would like to see the Rockets organisation attempt to rebrand. I would like to gauge the Rockets community to see if people are interested in having our Rockets try out the short sleeved uniforms. Here is a look at all of the Rockets uniforms throughout the years.
As many of you know, the NBA introduced short sleeve jerseys last season. The Golden State Warriors were the first team to take the step to try out short sleeve jersey. Even though the jerseys were reported to be new and ground breaking by some, many felt that the jerseys just weren't that great. Although there were some pockets of support for the jersey, the general reaction by fans and NBA players such as Robin Lopez seemed to be less than complementary.
I actually liked the Warriors new shirts. The pinstriped shorts for the Golden State Warriors uniform threw the whole thing off for me. It almost looked like the Warriors were wearing two separate uniforms. I was intrigued when I saw that the NBA is going to allow up to 5 teams to try out the short sleeved jersey as an alternate. I've grown tired of our current uniforms, except the red and mustard alternate which we currently have, and would love it if the Rockets redesigned their uniforms and perhaps incorporated a mixture of new and old.
It would be great if we can go back to the yellow, white, and red and have the short sleeved shirts with matching shorts as the alternate . We started wearing our current uniforms after we got Yao, now we have a new super star in James Harden, so why not start fresh with this new team and allow them to create an identity of their own.
