    Actually I just realized that the font is similar to the font used on the purple jersey's back in the day.. so forget what I just said.

    DeMar just said on his Facebook page that they'll be wearing that logo as a patch on their jerseys for all of next season.

    I don't get it.... the font selections are odd(?). And are those lightning bolts in the X's?

    I do like the purple and grey, though. I would be absolutely fine with purple and grey uniforms in the theme of the Kansas State colors. Lots of opporunities for third jerseys, too.
    The font is similar to the font used on the purple jersey's back in the early days. I like it personally. And if you look closely on those purple jersey's, the pinstripe really is a lightning bolts.

    Maybe they will do what the Magic did for their 25th anniversary: wear their original colour/pattern jerseys for a select few home games during the season.

    I would be fine with that. I would also love to see some ex Raptors in the house to partake in the celebrations as well.

    EDIT:

    Here is a link for what the Magic did.

    Hey gametime where did you find those logos? Those look pretty awesome. Were they logos the Raptors created or were they done by someone else?

    Good question: I only help people/companies with branding that doesn't infringe on existing trademarks (ie. in this case we're talking about the Toronto Raptors name or their existing logo marks; so if anything includes those, you need permission from the owner for merch. reproduction).

    But MLSE does have my branding documents from last May after it was covered in the media. That's also when NewEra picked up the Toronto "T" hats (note: if you live in the city, you can see Amir & Ross wearing them around every so often, too). In the end, it's all about passionate fans proudly uniting. We actually did a BIG giveaway at SickKids and UofT which was a blast! So many fans eager to rep this team! The next few years are going to be very exciting.

    Anyhow, hope that helps answer your question! (PM me if you're looking for something specific and I'll see what I can help with)

    EDIT: If there's enough interest for the NewEra stuff on this forum like there was on RealGM with all of those orders, one of the Mods contact me and we'll get something set up to help everyone (it'll be cost + shipping unless the Mods want to hand deliver; minimum production order I can do is 12).

    Ahh interesting. I'd love to be able to order shirts/hoodies or something with that logo. Its slick, minimal and modern which is how I like it.

    Alright, let me chat with the R.R. Mod-God to make it easier for everyone (regarding that crest, I have it in a format that reads Toronto Basketball, which can be used; stay tuned)

    I have no idea what to think about this re branding thing
    I'd love to see the purple back but the font that they use for writing Toronto pisses me off
    can they just leave things the way they already are, just change the colour, bring back the pin stripes THATS IT why mess with perfection?

    But we dont have perfection lol the font on our jerseys right now is so boring and plain! And that font on the logo is from the old jerseys... Plus, they're only using this as a patch on their jerseys next year. So in that case its no big deal lol

    I don't really understand what everyone is talking about in their criticism of this image.

    The font, the stripes/lighting, the colours, the everything is EXACTLY the things that were used on the original jerseys, from the mid to late 90's team.

    It's a straight up homage and not a rebranding. Which also makes it more likely that it will be used as a publicity thing and not as the team's look going forward.
