They started from the north and now they’re both here.
Following the second consecutive ‘Drake Night’ at a Toronto Raptors game, the top Canadian rapper/owner and the countries only National Basketball Association team are collaborating on a redesign and re-brand for this franchise.
Next year you can expect some new jerseys featuring Octobers Very Own. So you can expect some black, red and silver for the only NBA team not in the red, white and blue. Don’t expect any Tuscan leather however. That will be worse behaviour then forgetting the commissioners name or proving you’re really not “Steph Curry with the shot”! Don’t worry Drizzy, we’ve all been there.
Before all this however comes a new logo. From next season, gone will be the dribbling dinosaur that unfairly got mocking, ‘Barney’ comparisons. Although this logo will now make for a nostalgic, nice, old Charlotte Hornets like crest. Drake himself paying respectful homage to the old Raptor by rocking it on a cool t-shirt this past weeks past ‘Drake Night’.
Now following a “We The North-This Is Our Battle Cry And This Is Our Shield’ campaign the Raps new cool, circle crest features some red trim and the kept Toronto Raptors name wrapped around a ball. The seams of the ball being scratched away by a Raptor claw. Its a pretty cool logo, but lets us know what the Canadian faithful feels about it in the comments section.
After this centre circle introduction, what will follow on-court in the T-Dot’s comeback season is said by its rapping partner to leave everyone “floored”.
Forget ‘Jurassic World’, in the T, its Drake’s one.
