    I am hopeful that the new GM will have a least a few uniform changes in store for us.

    Exactly, I agree with you guys. But we already got a colour scheme and it's a good one, I think they should keep it and not because Red and white are Canada's colours but simply because those colours work. Do you want to change the colours just as a sort of "in your face!" to the people who think they should embrace the Canadian image even more? lol

    Obviously winning is the ultimate key to making the team popular throughout the entire country.

    It seemed clear it wouldn't be this season(or atleast the beginning of) that there would be new uniforms. It takes a while. It could be another couple years but as long as it eventually happens I'm fine with whenever.

    It's not an "in your face!" thing I think some people just want something fresh and red is kind of overly used in the league

    Yeah I guess that's true, it's definitely used by enough teams.

    My post about uniform changes was referring to roster moves as in players wearing the uniform of a different team next season. A bit of a hijack, sorry.

    I'd say look for something to coincide with 2016 20th anniversary?

    Just guessing but that is 2 full seasons away.

    I dont know the ins an d outs of the situation but look how much MJ in Charlotte town is doing with the brand, its just new uniforms...

    Hornets name change is not until 2014-15.

    So that means they're not going to change the name as well. I'm cool with that.

    if they started spitballing now, that's roughly when they'd come out

    also when TO could potentially have the ASG

    No issues with the jerseys.
    There are tons of NBA jersey that look more awful but are doing well, (Indiana for one).

    Talking about color rebranding, GREEN AND RED, unique? Yes. Raptors related? Yes. Looks cool? Yes. Oh well, won't happen though.
    Well there's Bucks, but the tones of those two colors they chose are just bad. And Im talking about red as primary color.

    Well then I guess it actually comes down to opinion, because I love the Indiana jerseys
