This season, Nike is taking over the reigns from Adidas as far as NBA jerseys go.
The Rockets will be saying goodbye, partially, to their Adidas jerseys they have worn since 2003. However, the new ones will likely have a similar design. What could the future hold for the new Nike jerseys?
Rockets fans everywhere would love to find out what the new uniforms are. Unfortunately, the Rockets are one of the last teams left in the NBA not to have their jerseys released.
This non-release of the jerseys has a couple of effects on Rockets fans. First, and most obviously, they cannot see the new design of the jerseys. Secondly, 2K is not revealing any screenshots/ratings of anything related to the Rockets on NBA 2K18.
Fans everywhere have been waiting for the James Harden and Chris Paul screenshot, but instead, they’ve received players like Ben McLemore and Nick Young. If for nothing else, Rockets, please release the jerseys so that we can see some 2K ratings and screenshots.
Ronnie 2K, the community manager for NBA 2K18, replied to us on Twitter explaining the reasoning of no Rockets info while we were talking to the FanSided site of the Clippers, Clipperholics.
Those are 2 of the remaining 7 teams that haven't released their Nike jerseys yet

While the Rockets jerseys have not officially dropped yet, there has been a leak of the red jersey. It came in a photo shoot with James Harden. They look similar but have different stripes on the side of them.

Will this jersey be the one that NBA 2K18 uses for the Rockets in their screenshots? That is likely the case. Hopefully, the jerseys will drop this week at some point.
