Based only on what we can see, well done.

Certainly an improvement from
last year, where the semi-muted, dark-light-color pattern from
top-to-bottom was just drab and runny.

The colors on
the 2013 jerseys are brighter and the design
sharper.

UniWatch published some full-length video game stills back in October that show how the shorts might prove a little dicey.

But a solid effort on the tops out of Adidas, who was
apparently concerned with being appropriately Houston-y, so obviously
planes.

From NBA.com
(via probasketballtalk):


Designed by adidas, the uniforms take
inspiration from Houston's rich
aeronautical history and the speed of the jet planes that dot its
skies. The uniforms' eye-catching impact camo pattern evokes the world's
fastest fleet of aircraft with the classic silhouette of a basketball
net.

Hmm, alright, what else you got?


Players
will take to the court in black-and-white aviator-style NBA All-Star
warm-ups featuring metal zippers made with a similar anodized finish
used on airplanes. Each player's jacket will be customized to represent
individual career accomplishments such as NBA All-Star Game appearances
and All-Star MVP awards, NBA titles, in addition to regular season
awards and Scoring
Championships.

I'm now
foregoing all non-anodized zippered clothing. As for the jerseys, I'm a
fan, especially of the East's primary blue design.

Would you buy one
if Jrue Holiday's name were on the back? Starters for the 2013 game, scheduled for Feb. 17 at the Toyota Center,
will be announced Thursday, Jan. 17 (tomorrow).

All
this talk about planes makes for a super convenient excuse to embed
NMH.
