There wasn't a jersey like it anywhere else. Nowadays the unifroms are just dull and outworn by every team in the league. I would love to see them put those uniforms on occasionally, instead of the "Huskies". I'm talking about the expansion days Raptors.

Pinstripes, jeff! Pinstripes! If our jerseys were still that stylish, Ru Paul would still be with us, for better or for worse.

Back in the day I thought they were ugly, but over time they've grown on me.

Bring them back!

While I'm not the biggest fan of the Old Raps uni...

The Raps should have retro jerseys on hand at least for 5 games per year IMO give us some variety!!!!

The Worst Uniforms In NBA History. Period. | Newsradio 620 - Milwaukee, Wisconsin News, Talk, Sports, Weather | Greg Matzek: The Freak Speaks

Top 10 Ugliest jerseys in NBA History Critically Speaking

Quote:
Okay, so you decide that you have to go with Raptors… at least it’s original. But if you’re going to name your team after a dinosaur, you absolutely CANNOT use purple as one of your primary colours. You just can’t. Then you go with a red dinosaur (you know, for authenticity’s sake) as the primary feature of the jersey, rather than the name or number, which not only clashes with the deep purple, but also shows what happens when a basketball team is put into a hockey town. Add in black (which can’t be seen on top of deep purple), and silver jagged pinstripes, and a juvenile, jagged font, and you have the ugliest regular jersey in NBA history, and possibly in all of sports history.

I love the simplicity of the Huskies uniform. And the shorts look like old boxing trunks. Very cool IMO.

I think that the Raps' uniform should get a complete overhaul. A new design with new colours and an updated logo.

I've heard how some people say that we should leave it as it is, as a way to build some type of brand tradition [recognition]. And the same people always bring up other franchises, like the Celtics, Lakers, Spurs and so on. All of those teams have one thing in common: winning history. That's why they can take pride in their uniform (brand identity) as it can be easily associated with the success and great achievements. The most you'll see them do to their uniforms are just some minor tweaks and updates.

What does the Raps' uniform (logo, colours, brand identity) remind you of? In another words, what do you associate it with when you think of it? I believe that I do not need to go further with this as I'd be insulting your intelligence.

As for the Huskies uniforms, I really can't say that I like them. But I don't dislike them either. Mehhhhhh....

All of these things are subjective and matter of personal taste.

I believe I made a thread about this some time ago: Raps jerseys (photoshop)

I actually like the uniforms now. Simple and to the point. I really, really, really detest over the top designs. The Huskies are still my favourite because of their simplicity.

The new Bobcats uniform has also grown on me. It looks more 'professional'.

The new uniforms are nice, the old Dino ones are okay, I would only rock 'em 'cause their retro.

It's just a boring font and won't stick around. It'd be nice if the boneheads who came up with these designs could think long term.

I'm fine with they ones they've got... the old ones were kinda juvenile. Nothing intimidating about a guy dressed up as a purple dinosaur.
