Decked in OVO’s signature black and gold colour palette and classic pinstripes, the City Edition jersey tells a story of Toronto’s NBA history, starting from the iconic purple dinosaur logo in 1995, all the way to Drake’s stylistic influences in 2015. The jersey’s bold design blends together the Raptor’s past and future into a solid visual statement about how far Canada has come up in the basketball world.
Since the NBA’s first game 75 years ago, where the Toronto Huskies narrowly lost to the New York Knicks, both Toronto and the Raptors have grown dramatically into their own. Representing the Raptors’ growth on the jersey is the dribbling dinosaur, who is wearing the team’s 2018-2019 NBA Championship-winning look. The dinosaur is dribbling towards the future as he looks back with a nod at the team’s legacy.
