Toronto Raptors Celebrate 20th Anniversary Night

It's time to bust out your Zan Tabak, Oliver Miller and Reggie Slater memorabilia. The first of seven throwback nights at the Air Canada Centre is upon us.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the franchise, the Toronto Raptors will be wearing their purple road uniforms from their inaugural season on seven different occasions.

The first of these special nights will be on Nov. 7 when they play host to John Wall and the Washington Wizards at the Air Canada Centre.

But wait! There's more!

All fans in attendance will be receiving a special edition purple throwback t-shirt. On it will be the claw logo with the names of every player who has ever suited up for the team contained within.

If you've ever wanted to wear Raptors gear with the names David Andersen and Michael "Yogi" Stewart displayed for the world to see, now's your chance.

Two players that left more of a legacy north of the border, Antonio Davis and Alvin Williams, will be attending the festivities as well.

Davis is one of only four players (Vince Carter, Chris Bosh and DeMar DeRozan) in Raptor history to be named to the Eastern Conference All-Star team, while Williams may have hit the biggest (and most important) shot we've ever seen.


Here's a look at all seven 20th Anniversary nights and when they'll be taking place:
