You know -- 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.

Some good work 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.

Can't, uh, can't say that really jumped out at me on first look, but 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.

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

Would you buy one if Jrue Holiday's name winds up on the back? Starters for the 2013 game will be announced Thursday, Jan. 17 (tomorrow).

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