    What's REALLY funny is that new archeological evidence suggests that velociraptors (in addition to many other dinosaur species) were actually feathered creatures, looking more like giant, flightless birds.

    Just be glad that the Raptors didn't come out when Titanic was released.. I guess that would be fairly ironic considering our history.

    People nowadays really like minimalistic jerseys, everybody's gashing that brooklyns new jerseys are so nice, but they're black and white, nothing original about that, I would rather see the raps playing in those jerseys than black and white ones
    The Brooklyn jerseys are awful, and their court is worse, it hurts my eyes.

    I agree with you about disliking the current minimalist trend, but those old Raptors jerseys were downright hideous! Barney the dinosaur on steroids, floating in a deep purple haze wasteland, caged in by either barbed wire or lightning bolts??? Plus, I count 5 different colors (black, white, purple, red and gray)... and why are the "T" and "S" capitalized? It was such a mish-mash, based on an overhyped movie that had no relevance to Toronto!

    There's got to be a happy medium between the two!
    No man you are wrong. These are probably the most creative jersey's ever. They looked amazing! It looks like someone actually put some effort and creativity into making them. Look at jersey's like the nets, celtics, and New york. They are so plain and boring, its just a jersey with the team name on it. It looks so damn boring

    Definitely agree with the creative/uniqueness aspect.

    But this was also creative and unique:



    After all these years, I just noticed the bowler hood ornament, bahahaha!

    Tried to pull off something what I would like to see, thanks for project thirty four for awesome jersey stock.



    after spending 4 hours on these, this is where I got lazy, some flaws visible.

    I have to admit, these look really sharp. Although I think the red unis would look better with black letters/numbers.

    I think Barry's issue is more about the name of the team, rather than the look of the uniform.

    That Miami one was hideous, guess they wanted it to look more like the Marlins lol

    The current Raptors unis could be tweeked. Anybody that likes the original purple unis, don't take this personally, but they were the worst in NBA history imo.

    I like the Nuggets new alternate uniforms.

    The Raptors should keep the name, but ditch the dinosaur interpretation and go the "birds of prey" route. They could work up a mascot/logo based on a hybrid of Canadian raptors - Osprey, Eagle, Falcon, etc... Then they would also have a rational reason to bring blue in as a base-color (as in the sky) and get some synergies with the Leafs and Jays.
