The return of the Toronto Raptors' Dino jersey

The NBA champions take a dip in the past on the occasion of the twenty-five years of the franchise

The return of the Toronto Raptors' Dino jersey The NBA champions take a dip in the past on the occasion of the twenty-five years of the franchise

Once upon a time, there were Vince Carter and Tracy McGrady, once upon a time there was the Toronto Raptors' "Dino" jersey, so bold, original and unique. This year the Canadian franchise reach the twenty-five years from their born and they have decided to celebrate this important goal together with Nike, bringing back that unforgettable jersey that marked the second half of the 90s. 
But let's remember how was that shirt: white the Home version, purple the Away one, striped by three slim lines and characterized by a big red velociraptor that headlined the centre of the jersey with a basket ball under its paw. Just the dino is the main detail of this jersey, remembered by everyone as one of the most beautiful of those years.

Surprises cannot be over for Toronto's supporters: there was a talk to bring even on the Scotiabank Arena's parquet the famous red velociraptor, a detail that could draw the attention to the NBA champions in charge.

However, the Raptors aren't the only ones to look back to the past: the Utah Jazz and the Memphis Grizzlies they have rescued an old jersey from the archive, to be worn during the upcoming regular season. Who knows that other franchises do not join in this nostalgia dive.

 
The Dino Jersey is available on the official Toronto Raptor's online store.
