    Default Raps uniforms are ugly?

    According to Brent Barry they are.

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...t-nba-uniforms

    The sad part is that it sounds as if he just decided to pick on the Raptors because of the team's name and he tried to make a joke about it but he isn't a funny guy so it was a fail.

    I watched the next few after that and Brent Barry gave a lot of love to the raptors. He said they were the team to watch in the east and said bargnani was the most likely player to breakout this year.

    Purple and orange? When has that colour combo ever looked good? We're used to it because it's been Phoenix's colours forever, but they're still awful.

    And forrest green combined with red (is that sleigh bells I hear)? My stomach is churning just thinking of it....not to mention the cute, cuddly deer on their chest :|

    It's a matter of taste. Neither of us are right.

    I really ;ike our jerseys. They are clean, bold and fairly simple.

    Worst is the Twolves with their little Xmas tree borders, Suns are ugly (you forgot the grey accents Nilanka, just to offset terrible to the next level), Cavs yellow and red, NOH, bucks, and last for a reason would be the Nuggets. Especially the new ones.

    100% agree. But we could say the same for most of the topics discussed on this site

    The Raptors uniforms and colors need a complete overhaul, maybe even the logo.

    Too much red in the NBA... there's like 15 teams with a primary red away jersey... please.... something new....

    We seem to have a uniform discussion every six months or so... talk about a topic with no "right" answer! lol

    Personally, I hated the 'Raptors' name immediately, since it made us look like pathetic trend followers who latched on to the most popular thing going (Jurassic Park of all things). At least if it was the Calgary Raptors, there would be a natural dinosaur connection (ie: UofC Dinos). However, this franchise has been stuck with the name for 15+ years now, so there's little point changing it now. For the record, I also hate the 'Huskies' name, as it is one of the most generic team names going and also has very little relavance to Toronto/Ontario. I tend to like names that are cool, yet stand the test of time, while also having a relevance to the team/city in question.

    As for the colors, I understand the shift to red. On one hand, it got away from the Barney references (purple dinosaur team) and was done in the wake of the Grizzlies leaving for Memphis, leaving the Raptors as Canada's NBA team. The Raptors using red is more natural than many of the other teams that have red included in their jerseys, so I don't mind it. I actually quite like the red & black jerseys, as shown nicely in NoProps' profile image (minus those stupid silver chevrons on the red stripe under the armpit).

    oh god, ther really is no accounting for taste is there?

    I think the current set are among the best of the "new era" jerseys. Personally hate the yellow Lakers Jerseys and the Utah ones.

    Also love the name Huskies and the colourways. I have no problem with the blue colour schemes of the city and it's other 2 major sports teams and like that about the throw backs. Also for the guy who said they have no connection to Toronto/Ontario, well the Tdot connect is vague but dog sledding was quite common in Ontario back when it was quite common anywhere else outside of the Arctic. It is also a more recent activity in this area than Dinosaurs walking around in what is now Alberta. Hell, you can go dog sledding in many areas just outside of the GTA, I know of an outfit in Algonquin Park.
