Bumping with a purpose:

Apparently Demar Derozan is to thank for the Raptors not going full-OVO. From Kyle Lowry:

We was supposed to change everything. We was supposed to go to black and gold everything.

And DeMar was like, he didn’t want to do that, because he’s been here with the red and the white – and they’re Canadian colors.
Listen, our colors are red and white. This is what it is. Let’s leave it how it is. We’re Canada’s team.

So the original plan was to be a walking OVO advertisement and Jay-Z/Brooklyn knockoff, but it was changed into a dried-out husk of their former identity because of DeRozan?

Uh-huh, sure. You'd think somebody would go, "Hey, this retro gear is selling pretty well, maybe we should do something in line with those, like, I dunno, use purple again or something?"

They would have named a cathedral after him if he would have made them add purple, too. What a slacker.
