The Raptors are reportedly considering a full rebranding, including a name change, and not a moment too soon. They've never even settled into a consistent color scheme, much less a consistent visual identity. Time to start over.

I honestly believe that a lot of the rebranding stuff is coming from the media, I am personally fully for keeping our brand.

I have always thought our uniforms are really solid. I like them. Who cares about this damn rebranding business when we just need better players in the uni's? Rebranding won't change our culture if we still play like shit. Rebranding will only help their marketing for only so long.

Our uniforms have been exactly the same since 1999, only the colors changed. Purple, red, black: they've been our colors since forever. How many teams can say that?

Look at the Hornets/Pelicans gear for inconsistent branding.

I'm all for keeping our current colors, name and claw logo.

Regarding the new Suns unis:

The whole package feels like a very tasteful updating of the Suns' 1990s look, and the orange gradient on the home lettering looks particularly sharp.
Yeah no this guy obviously knows his stuff.... smh......

I don't this at all. The only thing I don't really like are the chevrons. Beyond that I see nothing wrong with our uniforms. TBH i hate the Lakers uniforms. If they didn't have their history their uniforms would be looked at as ugly imo. And I hate the Spurs and Jazz uni's as well.

I also find it funny that he says Toronto had never stuck with a color scheme....................but he thinks we should change things. Lol

Gotta love it when american media tries to disect a team they know nothing about.

You would think they did the list based on the standings (average over years kind of thing). That's not a coincidence that someone thinks the Lakers is the 2nd best and its the Lakers. If it hockey, the Old LA Kings colours and would have been dead last. Its a pretty subjective piece of BS list.

In case anyone hasn't noticed, across all sports, it is often the uniforms that have been around a long time and or have a winning tradition that are granted great uniform status......whether they deserve it or not.

Some deserve it like Yankees, Steelers, Blackhawks, Red Wings, Bulls. Others are really just a couple of O.K. colours that people go ga-ga over for the sake of tradition. Colts, Celtics, Red Sox, etc. Yes, I included the Celtics. Any team in any sport can start up today and choose green and white......they don't.....because that actually sux. If they didn't have a winning tradition, I'd call them the pukies.


And is there a poll or list that can be put out that doesn't have us near the bottom? Oh sorry, we lead the league in "White Vegas", hooker parties that are called anything but hooker parties and referee calls that are reversed after we've already lost the game.

Some obviously care.

Change the colours around and change swap the letters for another team's name and it will totally fit in and no one will notice. This whole topic is a joke.
In the grand scheme of things it obviously means nothing, but to say that it means absolutely nothing to you is your business. Why do you care why anyone else would care?

True. I mean if this came up during the season we'd have bigger fish to fry. This type of topic is summer fodder.

nothing's wrong with our jerseys, they're just plain, they're not ugly or exceptional good looking

personally this is 1 of the last things i worry about when i watch them, if they win i could care less about what the uniforms look like
