James Harden's Houston Rockets are off to a great start and they are at the top of the Western Conference table with Los Angeles Lakers. The Rockets revealed their new City Edition jersey of the season tonight at halftime of their game vs. the Portland Trailblazers (they won 132-108). The NASA inspired white 'City Edition' uniform evokes Houston’s historical and present relationship with the Space Agency, which is based in Houston.

The highlights of the uniform set include the NASA font (main feature of the jersey, such as the font used for the Clippers) for typeface and numbers throughout the jersey and the traditional Astronaut ID tag on the upper right chest, in addition to the American flag on the belt line to celebrate national pride. But the jersey features lots of details that underline the bond between the Rockets and the NASA, such as the side panels of the jersey which are inspired by the Gemini Program that helped NASA prepare for the Apollo moon landings. The jersey features the 'H-Town' writing, that most commonly refers to the city of Houston.

 

The 'City Edition' uniforms will debute on November 30 when the Rockets face the Atlanta Hawks at Toyota Center. The jerseys will be available for purchase beginning Wednesday, November 27 on RocketsShop.com.
