Toronto Raptors set to debut retro court vs. Orlando Magic


The 2019 NBA champions are honouring their past with a stylish redesign of their court, which will make its debut Monday night against the Orlando Magic.

Covered with old logos and their original colours, this is going to be one visually nostalgic game.

The Raptors logo featured at centre court was a part of the franchise until the 2008-09 season, when the slight change of including more red and less purple was adopted by the team.

Since the complete logo overhaul at the beginning of the 2015-16 season, Toronto has included more of their historic memorabilia. From the Huskies jerseys to the fully-fledged purple uniforms just last season, having the complete court reconstruction is a natural progression.

The team is returning from a two-game road trip over the weekend where they split results against the Boston Celtics and Chicago Bulls. Now playing the Magic, the Raptors get to face the first team they defeated on their way to their championship last season.

Jump ball is at 7:30 p.m., but the nostalgia will surely begin before that.
