Raptors reveal new jerseys at OVO Fest

The subscript to OVO Fest was a cool tidbit of NBA news as the Raptors let their ambassador reveal their new away alternate threads. Drake went with the free agent signee/Toronto-bred Cory Joseph, who undoubtedly chose the number 6 for his hometown. The OVO colorway has always been a hit and translates well to the jerseys, which will likely translate well to the court too. Probably Philly’s the best, ha! What another checkmate move that’ll be for Drizzy.

Below you’ll see him rockin the threads and above, all of the options the Raptors will have this year. The colors are tight but I’m not totally feelin’ the arched ‘Raptors’ and close spacing with the numbers. It makes me want last year’s unis back, in fact. But that said, the OVO one is gonna do some numbers.

OVO x Mitchell & Ness x Raptors Collection

Late last year, Drake announced an upcoming OVO x Raptors collection with Mitchell & Ness and today we get a look at the lookbook before it all goes on sale tomorrow (Friday) morning.

I’m a fan of the old school dino logo and it even being taken a step further with some of the old school type (like the Raptors Basketball practice tee, probably my favorite of the collection.) Everything is donned in the classic OVO gold color and if I was a Toronto Raptors fan I would be quick to snatch this up asap. It just makes me wish Kanye would do something like this with the Bulls.

The collection is coming just in time for the playoffs but the Raptors aren’t looking too hot like last season. Especially after last night’s loss to our hometown Bulls. This kind of sums it up.

The Noah/Dunleavy high five is fantastic.

Terrence Ross dunk vs. Knicks

Whoa.

It didn’t take long in Sunday’s slate of games for a must-see highlight. Here’s Terrence Ross jumping from just inside the free throw line at near-max. speed. Turbo mode. Plus, the way this Vine is captured, it makes it look even cooler.

BONUS: Here’s the nation’s #1 high school recruit, Ben Simmons (born in Australia and attending LSU next year)¬†throwing a fluid alley-oop¬†to himself off the backboard. Nice.
