Houston Rockets Star Wars Night

It’s Star Wars Night at the Toyota Center in honor of Star Wars: The Last Jedi‘s opening later this week. Unfortunately, the Rockets, who are shelling out $117 million in payroll this season, didn’t spend a few extra bucks for their Star Wars-themed costumes.

Fans were treated to a C-3PO who was swimming in his suit, a Jabba the Hutt who looked like a cheap inflatable, and a Darth Vader who looked more like Darth Scrappy Doo. What’s the point of staying under the luxury-tax threshold if you’re going to buy pathetic costumes for arguably the best promo night of the season?

So the Rockets messed up with these costumes, but the rest of Star Wars Night admittedly looked pretty awesome. The Jedi James Harden Jedi bobbleheads were badass.

And as amateur as the C-3PO and Jabba The Hutt costumes were, these Original Trilogy stormtrooper and Episode III clone trooper costumes looked pretty legit.
