@  slick shoes : (23 September 2015 - 06:37 PM) kind of late in the day but NBATV is broadcasting classis Rockets games all day today.
@  SadLakerFan : (16 September 2015 - 04:37 AM) Man, as a Laker fan, I'm learning how little you care about the off season when your team sucks. Anyway, a quick moment to remember Moses. Still remember watching the 81 team as a kid - losing record, NBA Finals. I would have cried w/joy if they could have beaten the Celtics.

@  thejohnnygold : (14 September 2015 - 04:36 PM) A good article from Blinebury talking about when Hakeem and Moses used to play in the park. LINK
@  rockets best... : (14 September 2015 - 02:29 AM) I agree totally. I got to watch his Rocket days and the man was a hell of a player. BIG MO R.I.P.
@  Mario Peña : (13 September 2015 - 05:24 PM) Sad to see Moses pass. I don't remember watching him as a Rocket but I do remember his Philly and Hawks teams. He was the perfect man to mentor Dream. It's a very sad day for his family and friends and there are many.
@  majik19 : (12 September 2015 - 09:01 PM) i just saw a post wishing Yao Ming a happy 35th birthday... am I the only one whose mind is blown that he's only 35?
@  cointurtlemoose : (08 September 2015 - 01:17 AM) aaaah, thanks jorge
@  jorgeaam : (08 September 2015 - 12:21 AM) Love it how Hinkie and Morey always target the same players, but hoping he isn't another Covington
@  thejohnnygold : (08 September 2015 - 12:03 AM) Christian Wood has signed with Philly
@  jorgeaam : (07 September 2015 - 10:32 PM) If I'm not wrong, he hasn't been waived yet, they have until october 4th to do that
@  cointurtlemoose : (07 September 2015 - 05:39 PM) Anyone else surprised that Kostas hasn't gotten picked up by anyone yet? I wanna see that guy play somewhere

@  Losthief : (03 September 2015 - 02:27 AM) this dude's gun fired and all he got a misdemeanor at bush lol: http://abc13.com/new...ush-iah/815795/
@  Losthief : (03 September 2015 - 02:26 AM) theres more articles all over, but the jist is houston (and texas) doesn't really arrest for it, they just recommend you leave it in your car when they catch it. So seems dwight got lucky he was in texas and not cali or the NE.
@  Losthief : (03 September 2015 - 02:22 AM) honestly we should just be glad they caught it...

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.

 

The whole concept of the "Clutch City" unit was botched in every way possible. Every way possible. I just can't sum it up in any other way. The worst part about it is, we ditched the ONLY legit excuse for a uniform that we had last season for this crappy design and will be showcasing it in most of our nationally televised games. Embarrassing.

 

The "Titan" grey unit had potential, but was just not executed as well as I'd hoped. Easily the most aesthetically pleasing, but that isn't saying much.

 

The black alternates for 16/17 just don't make any sense to me. It seems like Les asked his middle school son to redesign the uniform and went with whatever the kid came up with. Stock standard font in white arched across a black jersey. Not creative in any way and completely irrelevant to the identity of the team, the team's history, or the history of the city itself.  

 

I have studied the rebranding of the Milwaukee Bucks over the past year and really hoped that Houston would take the same route hiring a company to develop something really, really great. Our original logo with a few modern touches. A simple, yet timeless update to our logo/team crest that embodies Houston/Rocket culture.

 

Is it too late to back out on any and all of these kits and give a professional design group try their hand at this? Please?

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.

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."
