you make a good point and i understand what your saying. but i think it has something to do with Yao Ming's status, being the face of chinese basketball and being the face of an American Franchise in houston rockets... making those jerseys shows an appeal to chinese fans. its like when USA basketball wear their colors to the olympics, i think these alternate jerseys would be appealing to chinese fans as well as it translating to american fans. i don't know, just a theory... i mean they are classic houston colors nonetheless.
