Meanwhile, the Rockets will premiere their jerseys on February 21 against the Toronto Raptors, and again on February 23 against Minnesota and February 25 against the Los Angeles Clippers.
It is another move from the NBA to appeal to their burgeoning fanbase in China which continues to grow each year and commissioner Adam Silver is always looking for new innovative ways to involve them more in the game.
It is unknown if any other of the teams in the league will also be joining in on the jersey changes, but the Warriors and Rockets have certainly done a great job with the design of theirs and the players will be looking forward to donning the new look…
