In their first year as the NBA’s apparel provider, Nike has unveiled a new set of uniforms that are supposed to speak to each team’s fanbase: the “City Edition” jerseys. “The Nike NBA City Edition uniforms represent insights and emotion from the court to the upper deck to the cities’ streets, in pursuit of a unique way to capture each team and its city in a way that respects the past and present of the clubs while also positioning them for the future,” Nike said in a press release. Some of them are so fire you can’t see them through the smoke, while others might make you want to put flame to them yourself. Here’s our ranking of all 30 Nike NBA City Edition jerseys.

Maybe somebody forgot to tell the Rockets they could actually change their jerseys. The Chinese lettering as a nod to their fanbase across the Pacific Ocean is a nice touch, but it’s something they’ve done a lot in years past. They could have done so much more than a rehash of an old idea.
