Default New Raptors Logo


Looks pretty similar to the old one; just got rid of the purple. Just posting it to see if any Raps fans noticed this.

Still think the raptor with the basketball is cheesy. They need to re design it like the grizzlies did a few years ago. Time to retire this logo!

Are we introducing the all black alternate this year? I've wanted an all black jersey for about 5 years, and supposedly it's coming, it'll look so nice.

Looks expansion team-ish...wish they'd go for a more classic look.

On a side note ..I remember when they were picking names for the 'new Toronto franchise', and had it narrowed down to 3 names - Raptors , Dragons , and Huskies ..Really wish the went with Huskies..would of been nicer jerseys .

Went with Raptors cause Jurassic Park was the 'in' thing at the time.

That's exactly the feeling I get. It's a pretty 90's-looking logo.

I think some variation of the ball with the claws with the city or team name incorporated should be the main logo.

That might explain why the NBL (National Basketball League) folded after only two years having teams such as:

The Montreal Dragons
The Halifax Windjammers
The Saskatoon Slam

Well they should have went with the Huskies since Toronto was originally the Huskies when the league started.

On a sidenote, the first game played in NBA history was the New York Knickerbockers VS Toronto Huskies...
