Raptors bringing back awesome purple jerseys next season
The Toronto Raptors will be celebrating their 20th year as an NBA franchise during the 2014-2015 season. If you were a kid who grew up in the 1990s, you probably had or knew someone who had a purple piece of clothing that was acceptable for a young boy to wear because it represented basketball’s newest team. That shade of purple is coming back next season.
The Raptors announced on Thursday that they will be wearing their original jerseys for select home games next year to commemorate the team’s 20th anniversary. Amir Johnson modeled one of the “Jurassic Park” throwbacks on Instagram.
I just might have to bust out my old Starter jacket.
