I wish the Rockets would go ahead and add black to their colors but I guess there not feeling black. Like I said I would love to see these as black, white, and yellow than the red. If we replaced that red with black I think the jerseys would look much better.

at first when you were talking about black, yellow, white i was like wtf? what would that look like but after thinking about it, i think those would look pretty good. it gives a steelers feel.

like people in the main forum mentioned though, this is pretty much for the chinese fans, i mean that's basically what the alternate uniforms are. my theory, with yao ming out for the whole season, they need to keep their chinese fan base tuned in??

but with other uniforms, there's so much possibilities, but im tired of the metallic red away jerseys lol. i think they need to implement the navy blue again.

I don't really get this. Would americans love wearing red white and blue? Frankly I'd be sick of red and yellow if a was chinese.

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.

I like them, modern with a retro Rockets feel. I'm hoping for a black Orlando kit in the current style.

I dont really like the black photoshop version, first thing I thought of when I saw it was the Indiana Pacers.
