What each Raptor’s personal style says about their game style

We're just fun guys.

June 12, 2019

The Toronto Raptors are one victory away from winning the NBA Finals. I repeat, the Toronto Raptors are one victory away from winning the NBA Finals. No matter your history with the sport, with such a tasty triumph within striking distance—against reigning titans of the league Golden State, no less—it’s getting pretty hard for Canadians to resist the pull of Raptormania. Which is why we’re ready to throw our hat into the discourse.

Look, I’m not fooling anyone here, I’m no Bill Simmons, but I’m pretty sure I dress better than Bill Simmons. For our analysis of the team on the eve of Game 6 (and potentially gaining the glory of victory), we’ve thrown away the stat books in favour of breaking down your favourite Raptor superstars based on their fashion sense. Werk with us here.

From Siakim and Green’s flamboyant fashion tributes to Kawhi’s love affair with New Balance, to see what they say about what each player brings to the game. Grab your Ibaka-approved pink fedora and we’ll see you on the other side – hopefully at the Championship Parade.
