HOUSTON – The Houston Rockets on Wednesday unveiled their “City” jerseys for the upcoming season and they feature colors that are reminiscent of the Oilers.
Dropping the news in a video tweeted at 7:13, the announcement featured images of the Astrodome, Houston’s freeways, oil rigs, rockets, the Rockets championship wins and Clutch. It ended with images of a blue jersey.

The blue, white and red uniforms are reminding a lot of people of the colors worn by the Houston Oilers -- the city’s NFL team from 1960 to 1996.
The uniform announcement came shortly after news broke of the Rockets trading Russell Westbrook to the Washington Wizards for John Wall and a first-round pick in 2023.
So, what do you think of the jerseys? Let us know in the comments.
