New threads alert! The Houston Rockets have officially released their new “Earned” Edition Nike jersey that they received for making the playoffs last year.
The Houston Rockets haven’t had a ton of change in their jersey styles since the big change from Adidas to Nike a year ago. All-in-all, the basic jerseys improved a bit but mostly stayed the same as years past.
This season, however, it seems like Nike and the Rockets are looking to change things up a bit. They previously released the Chinese New Year City Edition jersey that is fairly different from other years, minus the overall style.
Now, there’s one more new jersey to get excited about. As a result of making the playoffs last season – hints the “Earned” name – the Rockets have received a familiar jersey with a much different color scheme.
Take a look at the new “Earned” Edition Nike Rockets jersey!
This new uniform is essentially a reworking of the current “Statement” jerseys from the last couple of years. But hey, it’s still really nice to see the Rockets trying out some different color schemes.
The two reds combination is pretty interesting to see and the concept as a whole is starting to grow on me. I think this will be a great jersey to see on the court as well as to purchase and wear as a fan.
When they are being used
As you see in the above tweet, the Rockets will be debuting these jerseys on Christmas Day against the Thunder. Starting next Wednesday, though, you can buy them for yourself. Which one are you looking to get?
The opponent on Christmas, the Thunder, also earned some jerseys. Here they are, they’re pretty familiar looking:

It’ll be an interesting two-jersey combination to look at on Christmas Day. We’ll have to see how the actual teams look at that point in the year.
