    Couple of interesting tidbits: new basketball training facility to be built; 2016 ASG - sounds like Raps going all out for it; re-branding the team?

    That last one could be interesting....

    I guess Phil Jackson didn't return Leiweke's phone call. The first big decision he makes and it's a dud.

    man Leiweke's doing an amazing job passive aggressively ridiculing BC without directly coming out and saying "this guy had no idea what he was doing"

    Didnt BC promise Stefanski the gm job? If Stefanski gets it (if noone else wants it) that should get a lot of LOLs.

    Basically they are trying to expand the popularity of the team in all of Canada not just Toronto and the GTA.

    I don't think they'll change the team name. But they probably will change the look

    Oh it's going to happen. Raptors was and is a terrible name to roll with. I've long said the team needs a fresh start, and a complete rebranding would be perfect.

    I remember hoping as far back as the Carter days that they'd change the name. Raptors is an awful, awful name. And all because of a damn movie. If the team had even been renamed a few years later because of a movie, they may have ended up with Wolverines...An actual animal that lives in and is associated with Canada. Also a basketball name because of Michigan. Also leeching off teh popularity of one of the most popular comic book characters of all time.

    Replying to my own message because...seriously, how does Toronto Wolverines sound? (and no, there won't be a hairy dude with a spandex mask as their logo/mascot)

    I thought of Beavers....but you don't want your team to be another word for pussies...

    I could get behind Wolverines, but i think Leiweke will want something more original if it's supposed to represent all of Canada.
