Raptors unveil two new alternate uniforms for 2016-17 season

August 23, 2016

The Toronto Raptors revealed two alternate uniforms that the team will wear this upcoming NBA season, including a sharp throwback honoring the 70th anniversary of the Toronto Huskies. 

The Huskies played just a single season in Maple Leaf Gardens in the Basketball Association of America (which would later become the NBA) in 1946, and actually hosted the very first game in league history against the New York Knickerbockers. 

The Raptors will also wear red jerseys celebrating Chinese New Year, which falls on Janurary 28th. The Warriors became the first team to wear a special-edition Chinese New Year jersey in 2015.
