Let's just call them 'Toronto'. It's modern. It's sleek.

Why change the name at this point?

Who cares what the name is right now when there are more important things to worry about like this team winning?

Toronto Blizzard, like the old North American Soccer League team.

Really though, I much prefer the Raptors. And red dragons, maybe if we signed Yao Ming.

No love for Toronto Ice? Must've sounded better in my head.

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 standing structures in the world with the CN Tower and also they lead western civilization in highrise construction ( Toronto leads western world in highrise... | CityNews.ca ).

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

I prefer Skyscrapers to Skyrise, tbh.

Skyrise sounds made up.

Problem is that name would be more fitting for Chicago or New York, the birthplaces of modern skyscrapers.

I like the Raptors as the team name and at the same time who cares, this team needs to worry more about establishing a winning culture than a new name,

Luckily for us, we're not actually on the team.

So we're free to worry about the team name, how the jerseys look, and the price of beer at the ACC.

Besides, a respectable name and uniforms may be more conducive to establishing a 'winning culture'.

raptors are fine, if anything going back to the huskies would be my only choice, but keep the raps, even though the league calls us the craptors.

^^ Totally.

Look at the OKC Thunder. Horrible nickname IMO, ugly uniforms, ugly logo... but they win games and they are respected.

If we had good players and win games, no one would care the nickname...

Personally, I feel that a name change is almost inevitable - there are enough fans that will never get behind the Raptors name.

Huskies is a safe choice, and I don't think that there would be any major outcry if the team were renamed Huskies and the color scheme changed to blue and white.

I have been hoping that the new ownership group would be interested in rebranding to generate more interest in merchandise, but it would definitely take some time to get all the pieces together.

Old thread, new idea.

If the Raps ever decide to go blue like the Jays and Leafs, or go back to being the Toronto Huskies, I think they should steal Kansas' scheme. I've always liked their jerseys.
