    I say they just go back to the original name. Where it all started. Toronto Huskies. Being back the blue and white, like all the other Toronto teams.

    I could get behind Wolverines, but i think Leiweke will want something more original if it's supposed to represent all of Canada.
    Not sure the Timberwolves would like it. This isn't the CFL

    I say this as a non-Torontonian Canadian, but I hope there isn't some attempt to give them a lame, pan-Canadian name. I hate being patronized to. I'd rather that they have a team name that embraces their city.

    Putting aside the re-branding stuff, wasn't this one of the most bizarre morning of pressers in Raptors history?

    The president of MLSE comes out and announces that the GM is being fired but staying on a president. Even though (as TL pointed out 1,000,000 times) he will have no say in basketball decisions BUT, they are keeping him for his knowledge EVEN THOUGH it wasn't ideal how things worked out. Then he whacks BC a few times before going on a stream of consciousness about re-branding the team and building stuff.

    Then, BC comes up and says TL mischaracterized his feelings about being fired and admits he's disappointed in the whole thing. Followed by the bizarre spectacle of having a recently fired GM talk about his new role in a club where he has no say but is being kept on for his experience and knowledge.

    I have been watching sports for 30 years and this is one of the strangest management happenings I have ever seen.

    Oh, and by the way, they still don't have a GM....
