With the Houston Rockets releasing their new “City Edition” uniforms, it’s time to rank the top five uniforms in the history of the franchise.

The Houston Rockets are a storied franchise, as evidenced by their 33 playoff appearances over the course of their 53-year history. The Rockets also have two NBA titles in their trophy case and have had several of the NBA’s all-time great players such as Hakeem Olajuwon, Tracy McGrady and James Harden. Not only that, but the Rockets have also had some of the NBA’s greatest coaches helm the team over the years, such as Rudy Tomjanovich.

Over their storied history, the Rockets have worn several different uniforms, which have become part of the Houston culture, especially the red “ketchup and mustard” jerseys, which the Rockets decided to bring back out for the 2019-20 season. If you recall, the Rockets actually wore these jerseys during Friday night’s victory over the Indiana Pacers, which was their sixth consecutive victory.

The Rockets also announced their NASA-inspired “City Edition” jerseys during halftime of Monday night’s blowout victory over the Portland Trail Blazers, who eliminated the Rockets from the postseason in the 2013-14 season. With the victory, the Rockets extended their winning streak to eight in a row.

With the Rockets having worn so many cool uniforms, it’ll be hard for us to pin down a list of five. Nonetheless, let’s get started!
