    Default Rebrand/KD

    Just came across some more gossip to share about these 2 debated topics. A kid I know just caddied for Jeff Deline of MLSE at the Canadian Open and apparently he confirmed the team colours changing to white/gold (home), black/gold (away) and all gold as the alternate. He also mentioned that the new $50 million practice facility is being built partially to lure KD, by showing the money they have/are willing to spend to contend.

    Figured I'd share after Drake's little attempt to lure Durant at OVO fest. And FWIW I'm really disappointed if the gold colour scheme actually happens. KD wearing it would soften the blow, though.
    There's math, and everything else is debatable.

    Gold only works as a complimentary colour. It looks too gaudy otherwise.

    I wanna know, did you friend first mention the gold black and white when he asked or did he simply ask if the colors would change and the guy mentioned the colors? Cause he could have been pulling your buddies leg lol if its true well then this is all good news... Except for the all gold alternatives, that's bad.

    Not sure of exact details. Could very well have been messing with him, but didn't seem that way when I heard the info. As far as I know, he just mentioned he was a big fan and got the inside scoop handed to him. Apparently the VP of Global Partnerships doesn't keep much in the vault!

    Well I guess the guy figures it doesn't matter if he gives the info to a kid cause most people won't believe it anyways.

    Wow, they are going to a gold colorway? If so, I am disappointed.

    Shows how much of an influence the Drake has on the Raptors, which I guess is due to the fact that he has been a big part of hyping up the team. Obviously with OVO, that must be a huge influence on the styling of it. Hopefully the logo doesn't become an owl. I would advocate that it would be worse than the cartoonish Barney the dino.

    Being optimistic here, they might pull it off, but I think that they could have gone with something better.

    I don't mind a gold/white/black color scheme ala the NO Saints, I look forward to it. Anything new is good for a bit.

    For sure, that would look good.

    Just no Washington Wizards retro gold please.

    I'm sure they can make white and black jerseys with gold accents look good.

    The all gold ones? Ehhhhhhhhhhhh….. not so much.

    Found this on the web

    What I would have liked is something that emulates the gold Celtics jerseys, but throwing in purple instead of green.

    Myself (March 2014):
    The raptors are a tremendous young team and will win a championship in the following five years.

    purple red and gold would have been bad ass.

    i'm holding my judgement until i see what they make because i know this could go horribly wrong, but i'm cautiously optimistic given that leiweke's in charge and they hired that top graphics firm to make the brand change

    That only works if you assume Washington and Sacramento just hired some high school kid to do their designs.

    The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

    That's not true. That would imply that all ownership groups/management groups are the same. I think we can all agree that Leiweke is better than most so it's probably safe to say his decision making process as far as firms he hires and the overall design is probably above those that you mentioned.

    Besides, we have Drake and he's the coolest ever.
