James Harden will be on the cover of NBA Live 2018 and the jersey he’s wearing at what’s thought to be the photo shoot is a new Houston Rockets jersey.

Note the Nike logo replacing the Adidas logo and how the bands on the sides point downward in a bowed semi-circle instead of circling around the sleeves.

Here’s Houston’s 2016 - 2017 road jersey for comparison:

If this is the new jersey it’s not a major departure, simply a change of vendor. Personally I don’t find this jersey worth ranking against others. I’ll consider this as a continuation of the Yao jersey, which is now split between Adidas and Nike.

Major decisions about the future of the Rockets logo and colors most likely won’t made until a “sold” sign is slapped on the Toyota Center.
