The Houston Rockets have revealed their new jerseys for the upcoming season and they are fantastic. There’s the return of some classic unis as well as a new twist on the home and away ones.

The Houston Rockets have finally revealed their brand-new uniforms for the 2019-20 NBA season. After much anticipation, they were finally revealed at a season ticket holder event in Houston tonight.

The release comes in the middle of the NBA Draft, where the Rockets do not actually own a pick. This still keeps the interest high in Houston with some jerseys that the fans are loving so far (from what I’ve seen).

Without further ado, let’s look at the jerseys:



The new main away jersey is looking much better than it has in years past. Now, the font has changed for the better and it is a cleaner-looking overall jersey.

I will miss the red/red jerseys that were released in the middle of the season, but these are certainly pretty good as well.


The consensus from many was that the Rockets really needed to improve their white home jerseys. They did just that tonight, releasing a great one that can actually be worn at home without looking weird.

I personally didn’t mind the first Nike home unis, but this one is pretty much better all the way around. I’m looking forward to seeing them in action.

Ketchup and Mustard

The biggest and best reveal is with the last jersey on the podium. The Houston Rockets are officially bringing back the ketchup and mustard jerseys from the 90s that saw so much success in franchise history.

Fans have been wanting this for years. Now, they will get them and they look just as good as they did back in the day. This will definitely be the first purchase from me in the new collection. The Rockets certainly did things right tonight.
