@  thejohnnygold : (24 July 2019 - 04:30 PM) The McLemore/Bennett pick-n-roll will be unstoppable :)
@  slick shoes : (23 July 2019 - 03:04 PM) McLemore is an interesting add. Apparently we are gathering all of the first round flops of the past few years
@  Mario Peña : (12 July 2019 - 03:06 AM) WHOA.
@  slick shoes : (08 July 2019 - 09:16 PM) I would have to assume that to bring in Russ we'd have to ship out CP. I don't see it working any other way.
@  thejohnnygold : (08 July 2019 - 08:45 PM) The money makes it virtually impossible...I wouldn't worry. I have to admit I find the idea of having Paul, Harden, and Westbrook on the floor together intriguing.
@  slick shoes : (08 July 2019 - 02:51 PM) im going to go ahead and pass on any westbrook to houston deals. iso hell.
@  slick shoes : (30 June 2019 - 11:43 PM) trevor ariza has absolutely zero interest in returning to houston lol
@  slick shoes : (28 June 2019 - 08:16 PM) Id rather lose EG or Clint than PJ and ONLY if were getting Jimmy. Sounds like we have a trade partner for Clint if Jimmy isnt using us for leverage for his 5 year max offer.
@  thejohnnygold : (26 June 2019 - 11:33 PM) Do y'all think if we all tweet at Morey to NOT trade PJ he'd listen?
@  slick shoes : (21 June 2019 - 01:20 AM) ....and the new uniforms are trash.
@  thejohnnygold : (15 June 2019 - 02:05 PM) Agreed. Although, the injury narrative will probably keep them chirping.
@  slick shoes : (14 June 2019 - 02:40 PM) SO glad all of the Warriors fanboys can crawl back into their respective holes for an entire year. Good for Toronto/Canada as well.
@  thejohnnygold : (05 June 2019 - 07:33 PM) I think so.
@  slick shoes : (04 June 2019 - 07:20 PM) Dame and CJ #2 I assume?
@  thejohnnygold : (30 May 2019 - 05:42 PM) 3rd best backcourt in the NBA!!!
@  slick shoes : (29 May 2019 - 09:04 PM) im sure hed be great alongside jrue holiday and no one else. 100% iso ball all the time.
@  thejohnnygold : (29 May 2019 - 06:46 PM) Anthony Davis + the #1 pick?
@  slick shoes : (29 May 2019 - 05:39 PM) shopping the entire team including james. what is the point if you trade our best player away? what could we possibly get in return that is equal value of james harden?
@  slick shoes : (11 May 2019 - 02:07 AM) turnovers and missed free throws the theme of the game thus far. throwing away endless points.
@  thejohnnygold : (09 May 2019 - 01:35 PM) I wish we had found a way to steal that game...it was there for the taking.

Sort of a trivial topic, but I am a long time advocate for a new uniform for the Rockets. Our "Sunday/holiday" units (the mustard/ketchup joints) are mediocre at best. Am I the only one who feels it's time for a change? With the new identity we are now cultivating, would an image upgrade help streamline the process? I am pretty keen on the proposed units shown below:

These also caught my eye:

If I'm not mistaken, you can present your game ticket there from a game we won and you get some sort of free food.

I'm 100% with you, with Lin gone and Yao long gone, it's time to dump the Asian theme.. Also, Mustard on all versions should be mandatory. The Mustard is so tacky, gaudy, and obnoxious... IT'S PERFECT! 

 

I like the retro-style.

While I agree that we need a change in the unis, I'm not sure that those you shown us are the answer. They look too simplistic to me. But I do like the ketchup and mustard ones that we are currently using, so maybe I'm contradicting myself. We would never have a white jersey for the road, that would be our home jersey.

I'm really in to teams like the Celtics and the Lakers that haven't done much to their uni since their inception. They have a certain aesthetic that withstands the test of time to me. I guess what I liked about the options I posted (while more of a suggestion than a final answer) is that both call to our glory days but with modern touches as well.

This unit has grown on me given the recent announcement of teams with rings displaying their championships on their jerseys next season. Again, calls to our glory days but with a modern touch.

Bumping this up due to recent findings. We will be slightly modifying our jerseys for next season

 

(barely noticeable: https://pbs.twimg.co...IXIAAhsac.png),

 

but we are going to unveil an all new road alternate for next season (the mustard ketchup colorway). Intrigued to see how this is handled. The xmas uni's have also been leaked:

 

http://www.uni-watch...stmas-uniforms/

 

got to say, I am a fan.

 

It is also widely speculated that there will be major changes to many teams' units once the Adidas contract runs out and UA or NIke starts producing the jerseys. More important things to talk about right now, I realize, but just something interesting I ran across.

Another update via Jonathan Feigen:

 

  • "The Rockets will unveil new home and road alternate uniforms and a new 'Pride' throwback-inspired uniform at an event for partner and season-ticket holders at the House of Blues. They are not scheduled to wear the new road alternate uniform until the 2016-17 season. They will also wear a special uniform for the Christmas game against the San Antonio Spurs and will have a lunar New Year uniform unchanged from last season’s other than it no longer having sleeves. Those uniforms will not be unveiled at Tuesday’s event. The 'Pride' uniform replaces the ketchup and mustard uniform the team wore often in recent seasons, especially in the post-season, but will also use the colors from the franchise’s championship seasons."

I like the shorts on the Christmas jerseys. Not a fan of the cursive R, and I think non-italicized numbers would also look better. 

 

I think it's strange that they went v-neck on some of them, round on others, etc. 

 

I like the Project 34 jerseys posted above, but while the two stars I assume represent the two championships, not sure I'm a fan of where they placed them. Not sure where else we would've put them.

The stars do, in fact, represent championships won. This was "borrowed" from soccer clubs, as they place a star above their crest for each championship won and a gold crest if you are the reigning world cup champion. As basketball jerseys veer more and more towards a soccer style/advertising friendly uni, the stars and their placement should improve. I personally like how they are represented now with a small gold tab on the back of the jersey.

I have to agree. Wearing something that says CLUTCH CITY scares me. Maybe I am being to superstitious. The sleeve design is terrible the players actually look uncomfortable.

I actually kind of like the black ones. The gray one has grown on me a little bit as well. I like last years ketchup and mustard alternative more than the new clutch city one, but again I don't think it is terrible. It's just the sleeves that aren't appealing, but I understand why the league is shifting that way.
