    Red for me. I'm a western-canadian so the 'national' branding of the Raptors does strike a chord with me. At the same time, I can respect the history of the blue Huskies jerseys as an alternate.

    I had a purple shirt or two in the mid nineties. I'm not particularly proud of that, and wouldn't wear one today simply because I wore one fifteen years ago.

    I like the Red jerseys. I just don't like the maple leaf on the back, would rather have the claw back there. I think the black alternates look sharp. Just don't bring the camo or the green jerseys back ever again.

    I like the red uniforms, but I voted blue, because my dream would be for the team to change its name and be the Toronto Huskies.

    I agree with the suggestion to change the name to the Huskies. I would drop the stupid looking font and illustration of a dog blowing out a bong hit or whatever the hell that is. Save those for retro jersey night. Just keep it clean and simple. Blue and White.



    Raptors is stupid. Always hated the name and logo. From our track record in free agency they probably do too.

    I do like those retro huskies jerseys they brought back though. They were cool, clean and crisp.

    But we are the Raptors not the Huskies. So there.

    I think black with the logo and writing in purple. I hate the "LOOK WE'RE CANADIAN" all the time on all our sports teams. The franchise should stand and fall on its own merit. I think the new uniforms push that to the max, so bring back the original colours.

    my biggest beef is the design down the sides of the jerseys. its hideous. i also hate the new age collars. just take the celtics jersey, make it black with red writing and that's just perfect imo. home can be white with red font.
    Ive always thought that the Celtics jersey was really plain. Look how ugly it looks on Cleveland now, too many teams are going for the retro look IMO.

    Is it a faux pas to link another blog here? :P

    Anyway, you'll get your wish.

    90's throwbacks for some games this season!

    Blue and White are also the colours of the Toronto flag.

    Direct link in case other posts supplant it for the top



    I did see the original first jersey (T-Mac) in the Real Sports apparel store in the ACC after games, perhaps they were testing out the market?

    Default Say it ain't so!

    Not sure I want to see these jerseys out on the court again =P

    “I saw the Spring 2013 Adidas NBA Catalog and there are some new on-court offerings,” says Chris Blackstone. “There are new jerseys for Christmas Day and for home weekend games during the second half of season, called the Winter Court jerseys. They’re monochrome like the all-black Miami uniforms from the past couple years, but in team colors. Also, there are Hardwood Classic jerseys for Indiana (home from 1997-98 through 2004-05), Milwaukee (late ’90s), Chicago (mid-’90s alternate), Atlanta (late-’90s road), Miami (late-’90s alternate), Sacramento (mid-’90s alternate), Phoenix (1990s alternate), Philly (early-’90s road), Cleveland (mid-’90s road), Toronto (late-’90ss home), Houston (late-’90s road), and Utah (late-’90s road).”

    I am very nostalgic about these jerseys because at the time the Raptors were new and full of hope from Mighty mouse to Vince Carter, the Raptor teams who wore these jerseys played the most exciting basketball in franchise history.

    The later jersey the Raptors footprint is associated with the Bosh era, which was the most boring style of basketball played and also brought the loss of hope.

    I can. They needed to wait long enough to justify them as throwbacks, especially since they're pretty ridiculous jerseys. Really, there's a reason this style of jersey design didn't catch
