Something about that wordmark just looks bad. Like, Wal-Mart apparel bad. 

 

If it's true, they're going the wrong way. All they needed to do was tweak things up to be more in line with the 90's set than it initially tried to be.

Raptors looks good, but Suns? Meh, hard to tell, I need to see a real jersey, because on paper it looks bad. Nike should fix sunburst instead of changing whole jersey.

Those Suns jerseys have the lettering of a bad 90s Minor League Baseball team. Yikes. What an apocryphal  setup.

That's what it is...the gray/white beveling reminds me of the Florida Firefrogs (2017 MiLB).

Suns just lost all the personality there. This update is actually even worse than their last set, as difficult as it was to accomplish.

They just need some promotions like "Dress Up Like a Cactus Night" or maybe a re-hash of the Fresno Grizzlies "Price is Right Night", where they can dress like a cactus, or giant Plinko boards.

No more sunburst, though.  So, not sure how much of an upgrade it can possibly be...

The half-assed attempt at a "sunburst" was arguably the worst part of their current uniforms - either that or the butt stripes. If they're unwilling to do it right, then they're better off not doing it at all.

Major downgrade for the Suns especially for a set that's not even that good to begin with. I don't even know if I want their Sunburst uniforms back because those just scream 90s.

Suns are an upgrade IMO. Those sunbursts were pretty half-assed

Wordmark beveling looks a lot like the previous Milwaukee Bucks set, which is a not good thing.

For what the new Suns set is, it's not that bad. Would look really good without the leveling though.

All the Suns need to do to their current look is exchange black for purple wherever black shows up, and possibly update the primary logo

Still the best Rockets logo in my opinion

Modernized with a less cartoony/more realism look would get an approval from me(especially with the same court concept having the rocket launch at center court but obviously more realistic). It would also help keep the city brand closely resembled with the Texans and not too far from the Astros brand or even Dynamo as blue would be the predominant color and we are a blue collar city. A dark blue also makes sense for putting stars and space related things into the brand(still don't count out black since it kind of at least makes sense for a space themed team).  

I've been adamant about only wanting the red and yellow classic look for a rebrand, but i've given in and realize there are so many teens and early to mid 20's people who just don't recognize that as the Houston Rockets at all even though it was the Rockets look for 25 years of their existence and back to back championship glory.  

Leslie Alexander bought the team and immediately wanted to change the brand to make it his own.   Apparently the Rockets asked for a re-brand before they won the championship in 1994 and by the time they won, Les tried to keep it, but the NBA didn't allow it.  Anyway, that's what i've read somewhere.
BUT, he's had so long to go back to that look and we never wear retro uniforms and barely had 2 hideous alternates that were red and yellow since 1995.  I don't think Les likes the color scheme and never did.  
That's why i accept a red and blue modernized version of the late 90s with a red and yellow alternate being worn here and there.  I lived the days of Clutch City, but those days are long gone.  It's time to make new history for these younger fans out there and the current brand has been 15 years of disappointment/heart break/underachievement.   Were long overdue for a complete rebrand.

Drop the orange option and this set is a million times better than the current trash.
