Houston rapper Travis Scott showed off, even more, the new jerseys the Rockets will wear next year.

The Nike event showing off the new jerseys the NBA will wear next year happened last night. At the event, Travis Scott performed while wearing a CP3 “Association” white jersey.

The new jerseys come after Nike took over that department from Adidas this season. So far, three jerseys of the Rockets have been slightly altered to fit the new style of Nike.

Travis Scott wearing the new jersey is one of the first times a non-player has worn the new uniforms.

Take a look:

Even with the very slight change, the new jerseys are so much better than last year’s home ones. Do you agree?

Other Nike Event things

The Nike event was a pretty great one. Besides Travis Scott wearing the slick new Association jersey, the new “Statement” jersey was also released. This newer black jersey, like the other ones, has some slight changes but still looks pretty good.

More from Space City Scoop

In case you haven’t heard, there is no home or away jerseys anymore. The home team chooses what they want to wear and the opposing team adjusts to them.

One other thing that was announced was the pricing of the jerseys for people to buy. The authentic version of the jersey will be $200. The Swingman version will be $110. Finally, the replica by Fanatics will be just $70. Fanatics, you the real MVP.

There will also be team-specific athletic hoodies being sold for $200.

In case you missed them earlier in the summer, here are the two main new jerseys the Rockets will rock next year:
