Raptors unveil retro purple jersey for 2014-15

Sid Seixeiro is no fan of the retro Toronto Raptors jerseys that will return in 2014-15, explaining why the Raptors should put these jerseys away forever if they plan on rebranding.

TORONTO – The Toronto Raptors will celebrate their 20th anniversary in the NBA by bringing purple back — for a few games, anyway.

The team announced Thursday it will return to the original purple jersey used by the Raptors in the 1990s for select home games during the 2014-15 season.

“We are excited to bring back a piece of team history as part of our 20th anniversary celebration,” said Raptors president and general manager Masai Ujiri.

“Our fans have shown affection for the original purple uniform and I think our players will enjoy the chance to wear them next season.”
