Toronto Raptors City Edition jersey might have just been leaked but fans aren't loving it

Toronto Raptors fans are not responding well to a photo of what is allegedly the team's 2019-2020 City Edition jersey, which was confirmed to be a leak by some online sources.

The photo, which has been making its rounds on social media this morning, shows a black jersey with a gold "Toronto" emblazoned across the front in a cursive-type font that some are calling simply "awful" (though it appeared in the Raps' logo in the late '90s).

The OVO coloured uniform — which has in past years been sponsored by the Drake-founded clothing brand — also appears to have a jagged pattern running down each side, giving it even more of a retro feel.

"Every team is trying to out-do the other in having the ugliest jersey design lol," one user tweeted. "No effort at all," another said. And yet another joked, "bet it was from Champs Sports."

One even said the hideous fit "screams Drake."

The special edition jersey is a collaboration that Nike and the NBA started in 2017 to allow teams to pay homage to their home cities.

Whether they love the uniform or hate it, fans will have to wait to see the official design and get their hands on a jersey of their own when they're released later this year.
