Charles Barkley was a Rocket Man back in the 90′s

As I so often state, the 90′s were the prime years of the NBA jersey. I’m actually shocked I went this long without getting to the Houston Rockets, well their Rocket jersey. Not only is it a rocket orbiting a basketball, but it is an angry rocket orbiting a basketball. Look at that sneer, I would not want to mess with that rocket. A pissed off rocket really is the best thing for Charles Barkley to wear. Well not the rocket part as much as the really angry part. I am almost positive that when Elton John wrote Rocket Man that he was not talking about Charles Barkley.
