No. 4 worst: Current white
Of the Raptors’ current set of main uniforms, which try to capture the spirit of their red “North” alternate that they won the title in, this is the worst set. The chevron on the chest really stands out, and the fact that the pants have one leg with a chevron and one without it rubs me the wrong way.
The basketball with claw marks on the side looks cool, but this outfit is sure to divide some fans. Maybe we’ll get used to it as time goes along, and we respect the decision to zig when everyone else is zagging, but they probably should’ve tossed this back to the creative team before unveiling them.
No. 4 best: Current black
The current set has a real winner in the black set, as it has the Raptors wordmark arranged in an upward-pointing arrow, but it eschews the chevron. The slightly jagged, barely visible stripes on the front and side pay homage to that iconic 90s look, which is a very nice touch to add.
The black uniforms have always been a solid choice for the Raptors, as that alternate in the late 2000s and early 2010s was one of the best outfits in one of the few fashion-deficient periods in this team’s history. Hopefully, Toronto breaks out the black as frequently as possible next season.
