    I would love Toronto to be renamed to the huskies or I always loved 'Toronto North' but I at least we are not the lamest team name in the league..

    The name is weak, but it's the state bird... this is the whole 'cool' name VS 'meaningful' name debate.

    The "Raptors" may not be the greatest team name, but like Pelicans, there are far worse ones currently (Magic, Nets, Cavaliers, Wizards, Spurs, Nuggets, Jazz).

    At least Raptors is somewhat fear-inducing.

    Toronto Tanks

    Nuggets, Jazz, Spurs are great imo. Good associations.

    Jazz made sense for New Orleans originally, but not so much for Utah. "Mormons" maybe?

    Also, "Tanks" would only legitimatize our awful camo uniforms. We can't have that
