The Toronto Raptors recently unveiled three of the five uniforms they will wear in the 2020-21 NBA season. While new uniforms on the surface may not seem to be a big deal, Raptors President Masai Ujiri thinks differently.
“Uniforms do matter to players. Our team made the choice to wear the Earned jerseys during the 2019 Finals, for example. We want to give our players – and our fans – jerseys they’re proud to wear not just because they say Raptors on the front, not just because they’re a symbol of our city and country, but because they also look great. I think that’s what we’ve achieved with these.”
What sticks out about these three uniforms the most is the “north” pointing chevron that has been a key feature on Toronto’s uniforms in several ways dating back to their 2015 rebrand. This is meant to meant to symbolize the north, represent the team’s past achievements, and mark the path forward.
The City and Earned Edition designs will be unveiled closer to the kick-off of the 2020-21 season and will round out the final two uniforms of the group of five.
