If the team was a perennial contender, MSLE could change the team name to the Pylons and have them wear pink, yellow, orange and green jerseys. All I care about (and what everyone else should care about) is winning. When we start doing a lot of that then we can discuss changing the name and the colours. But for now, why waste time and money on changing some that has NO EFFECT on the performance on the court?
Huskies is as bad a name as the bobcats...really wish people would drop the idea that the raptors are giving up years of branding...
(huskies....its just a horrible name)
Trade ill maggot and change the name. Huskies is fine. Anything is better than raptors. Need a name you cant turn into something else related to poo. Like Craptors.
Screw that, Raptors is a badass name. It's a vicious animal that hunts in packs. It's a hell of a lot better name than majority of the league.
TORONTO: Raptors is a fine name. Just change the interpretation from "dinosaur" to "bird of prey" and get a blue, grey and yellow color scheme (sky, clouds/wings, and beak).
VANCOUVER: The next NBA team in Vancouver definitely has to be called the "tree-huggers". Green tops and brown, wood grain shorts. Granola and kale burgers sold at the games.
I used to have a Starter t-shirt (whatever happened to that brand???) that read "The Power to Devour". Let's bring that slogan back to the Raptors. It's certainly better than "the bounce is back".

huskies might sound generic but still better than the raptors name which just sounds really out of date given the context it was taken from.
oh well, at least its not as bad as team names like the mighty ducks. still can't believe they actually used it for real.
Huskies is a perfect name for a bunch of white pale college kids in cardigans.
I would be impressed if the name was changed to "Huskies" and "Don't Eat The Yellow Snow" was the official song.
I'd also be curious how many players ever heard of Zappa.
NOH changed from Hornets to a regional name that had some local meaning. I mean, how many Huskies do you see in the GTA on a regular basis? This isn't exactly Tuktoyuktuk. If we're going with a local TO animal, then it has to be either Toronto Squirrels or Racoons.
