Toronto Raptors (NBA) - 90's

They broke into the NBA in 1995 with no style at all but that is often the case with expansion teams, logos and colors. This was out of left field with a Dinosaur or sketch of a Raptor on the front dribbling a basketball. Laughable. Not to mention the colors bright red, purple, black, and silver. They were going after the Jurassic Park crowd or the hoops crowd? Did Jeff Goldblum own shares in the team? They also drafted Damon Stoudamire with their first pick his nickname was Mighty Mouse and that didn't match either.
