On that note i think it's time they tweak the uniforms. Nothing crazy but first thing i would do is get rid of the chevrons on the sides. I also think the black uniforms need to be main away uniforms.

I don't care what anyone says, I want to see them bring back the retro purple and red dinosaur jerseys. At least for a few times a year Those were dope and so many other teams are doing it.

Nice try but you're wrong! Even just the solid purple ones would be awesome.

I personally like the purple better than the red. The two tone was the best...

going to the red was a bad move in hindsight. Team lost most of it's identity. And the stupid Canadian angle sucks give me a break MLSE.

There's nothing cheesier and worse than a 'rebrand'. The only time a rebrand works is when they go back to their original colours or original look.

I love the red, especially with the black. IMO our black uni's are one of the better ones in the NBA. I would tweak and that's it.

Agree they are pretty awesome, just like black 90's bulls (not that they look similar but i really liked them too)

I'll say it 'til I'm blue in the face. If they're going to stick with the current colours, then silver and black a la San Antonio Spurs but with a sharper silver and a hint of red.

Booo-yah!

No they're not. Besides, not talking about a Spurs replica. It's an improvement over theirs.

This ain't that bad.

I think I googled it once an there was a soccer team or something that had that name, but I always thought it would be cool.

I really think we would try going with 'Raptors' as in birds of prey before we ever went for a full on remodel.

I hate out jerseys. They're ugly. I prefer the ones on the dinosaurs on them. The purple made us have the best colour scheme in the nba. Bring those back. White black and red is boring and doesn't look good.

And the Raptors name is stupid. But I can't think of any name that is so good it warrants a change
