No one’s currently having more fun in the NBA than the record-setting Toronto Raptors – and that includes off court. The team, in fact, has been known to tease each other about their fashion (in response to Fred VanVleet’s claims about being the most stylish Raptor, Serge Ibaka told us that his teammate had “too much wine”). And so, the time has come to decide, definitively, which Toronto Raptor has the best style.
10. Chris Boucher
The Raptors’ resident Canadian fits right in on the Toronto street-style scene. Pre-game, Boucher opts for comfort, sporting classic yet still on-trend athleisure gear. Think tapered sweats and Supreme bags, occasionally leaning into luxury fashion (Givenchy seems to be a personal fave).
9. Matt Thomas
Like Boucher, Thomas favours comfort, but puts a little more effort into elevating his looks, often seen pairing a Nike hoodie with a tailored coat.
8. Kyle Lowry
If we’re being honest, we’d like to see a little more in terms of fashion from the Raptors superstar, whose style we’d call upscale casual. That said, the six-time NBA All-Star is busy breaking records on the court, so we can forgive him.
7. Norman Powell
On and off the court, Powell is the epitome of cool. But he’s not high-fashion and he knows it. He has no problem rocking basic black-on-black sweats with an eye-catching statement shoe that puts his personality at the forefront.
6. Fred VanVleet
While VanVleet has claimed to be the most stylish Raptor, he’s admitted to us that he doesn’t know if he’s the type to “ever visit fashion week – though he does like to put a good outfit together. We’d sum up his style as a modern-day dad whose main priority is having fun with his children. But VanVleet does have some design experience, boosting his fashion cred.
4. OG ANUNOBY
Anunoby is currently at the centre of the heated scarf-off with fellow teammate Serge Ibaka (“@sergeibaka i influenced you”) for a reason. His style is trend-driven and brand-forward – that oversized Burberry scarf paired with Off-White sneakers is an outfit that will go down in team history.
3. Pascal Siakam
If we didn’t already know him as an incredible basketball player, we’d totally buy Siakam as a street-style influencer. Often seen in brands like Stussy and Carthart, Siakham has distinct style and an obvious appreciation for fashion. The power forward even has his own clothing line, Spicy P, after his nickname.
2. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson
Find us a Rondae Hollis Jefferson outfit that isn’t on point, we dare you. He’s not afraid to take risks (think neon orange puffers), but his swagger still seems effortless (what else would you call Retro Air Jordans?). We anticipate his pre-game looks perhaps more than any other Raptor.
1. Serge Ibaka
Serge Ibaka was always going to win the top spot. He threw down the gauntlet against VanVleet’s style claims (“He knows better.”) and ignited the scarf battle with Anunoby, gifting the entire team with their own giant versions of the accessory. It’s simple: Ibaka, with his bespoke suits and over-the-top extravagance, belongs on the front-row of every fashion week.
