Toronto Skyrise aka Toronto Rise, The Rise, Sky Basketball,etc....

I don't hate the Raptors name, like many people but I think the name "Skyrise",easily indentifies with the city more than the name Raptors. Also,it gives the team a frsh new look and start from their miserable history known as the Raptors. The Idea came to mind because Toronto has one of the tallest free structured standing buildings in the world with the CN Tower and also they lead Western civilization in highrise construction ( CityNews ).

So how about it, "Skyrise basketball? I also don't mind the Huskies

I remember when the team name was voted for in the toronto star. I always thought the Raptors was a bad name and probably the idea came from Jurassic Park which was a big movie at the time. I think there was 5 name options in total given and I liked the "Toronto Towers" the most, but even that name I did not really like.

A name like the "toronto ice" would be good I think with a kind of white metallic and blue metallic uniform.

My stepdad calls them the "rafters". Just once I'd like it if a team had their name be a homonym.

Toronto Turbines - like the idea (rocket, jets like Avro Arrow, wind turbines?, power generators), but it's too easy to say "Go Turds Go".

Why not Toronto Arrows? It could be a references to First Nations or European arrow. And it reminds me of Avro Arrow, though officially corporate linking is forbidden.

Have you been to Barry's Bay?


Zurakowski Park in Barry's Bay Ontario

And Raptors name sucks because we dont have a lot of fossil deposits. If the team were in Alberta, it would make sense. Maybe the Toronto Naismiths.

I've wanted for quite some time a name change. Everything about this team needs to change right now. Start from scratch.

I know the Raptor moniker is popular amongst a certain fan base, but I sure as hell am not part of that club.

I've always thought the team should've been named the Toronto Hosers. If the GTA ever gets a second NHL team, it'd damn sure better be called the Toronto Hockey Hosers. sGo Hosers!!
