What I don't get is this obsession with rebranding, surely there are far more pressing issues ...

dont need him, just get wiggins and well be set for the next decade.

Not a huge drake fan but yes he is up there as one of the top artists right now. Dont think he'll surpass jay z tho.

It is time for some brand changes imo. Everything right now seems to be about the 2015-16 season. Start getting better on the floor this season and next, then rebrand for the 20th anniversary and spend like drunken sailors. IMO this team will be going for it in a couple years and it all kicks in, in the summer of 2015.

omg you're right... LET'S JUST GO GET WIGGINS GUISE DAFUQ WE BEEN MISSING ALL DIS TIEM?

The inductive argument doesn't mean much because the majority are fans of Drake. They are accommodating to the larger fan base who enjoy Drake and perhaps will add some publicity onto the brand. Enjoy the ride.

Drake will never surpass jay-z as an artist or an icon. And I hate the dude, but at the moment he is whats popular and cool in pop culture, so as a PR/rebranding move, its a good idea.

Let's not overvalue the guy, he might be famous in Canada and the US but - I kidd you not - he's virtually unknown here in Holland and I bet a large part of the world as well. Biggest in R&B and rap?? Not by a long shot, not even atm.

His lack of popularity in Europe is irrelevant however so there's no problem there. I'm sure he can reach the Canadian target group but it remains to be seen whether he's qualified to redesign the entire Raptors' image. (especially since Jay-Z totally screwed up designing the Nets' logo and uniforms, and who could forget those godawful Mavs jerseys P.Diddy "designed"??)

Still, I'm intriged by the whole idea so I'm willing to watch how this unfolds.

you'd think a team that has been mocked for naming themselves after a flash-in-the-pan movie would be hesitant to base all their re-branding on yet another fad. no worries, though, we can re-brand in 2020 with whoever is at the top of the charts by then. perfect.

i'll be happy if they go back to purple red and black. Which has a strong chance of happening with all the retro revival stuff you see just about everywhere. I passed by my local footlocker in Eglinton square yesterday and they had these throwback touques on display on of which was a purple dinosaur Raptors one and it looked boss.

...and jeff, just to beat you to the punch i already know you think that's awful/ugly/terrible.

honestly this decision screams Tim Liewike. And i don't mean that as a compliment to him.

Beat me to it all you want but those are one of the ugliest NBA jersey's of all time.

Now the purple and black ones after that weren't bad imo. But the lightning bold pinstripes were gross and that fugly dinosaur.......yeeeesh. Besides why go retro so early into our history, especially with the shit history we have. I highly doubt TL wants to go backwards. I think his exact words were "fresh start". Hardly sounds like a retro kind of guy tbh. He also wants to be more "Canadian" and those uniforms hardly scream Canadian.

does it matter that most of the people on this forum are not adolescents and young adults? Is there not a reason why he's very popular in North America?

You seriously think the majority of people are Drake fans? A lot of artists get popular, it's a matter of staying power. Let's see where he is in 5-7yrs after a couple more albums.
