Raptors purple dinosaur

Next season the Toronto Raptors will be kicking it old school. They will be bringing back their purple jerseys with the “scary” dinosaur. Here is the statement from the team:

“We are excited to bring back a piece of team history as part of our 20th Anniversary celebration,” said Masai Ujiri, President and General Manager of the Raptors. “Our fans have shown affection for the original purple uniform and I think our players will enjoy the chance to wear them next season.”

Right now they only plan to break them out for select home games, but I really hope the fans get behind them so they wear them more often. I would much rather see teams go old school than the league keep forcing these sleeved jerseys.

I’m sure Drake will be modeling one soon.
