Default What would you like the Toronto Raptors to be rebranded to?

Poll

I created a poll. It has a blank at the bottom if anyone has better suggestions. Lets see what people can come up with.

Keep the name, tweak the uniforms and maybe the colors (please don't go to boring blue and white). I guess they wouldn't since blue is not exactly "canadian".

+ Change the fugly floor ASAP!

+ Add theatre lighting Pleeeeeaaaaase!

+ Mike up the rims

+ Add better in game Arena music

Agreed

Name is not that bad, certainly not worth the money and effort to change.

Canadian Red and White would be fine for colours, maybe a blue and white alternate option instead of the black may be cool, but nothing really wrong with the black.

Maybe add a Canadian Leaf or something Canadian to the logo

Don't really have an issue with the floor (maybe I just don't care enough)

Totally agree with the in game experience like the lighting, sound and music

Win.

Bit of a rant, but when did basketball become boring that you have to play music during live sequences? Am I at a concert? I love hip hop but during my game? I'm not talking about the music coming out of a timeout to pump you up when it's a very close game, but the random instrumentals that get played in the 2nd quarter? I had enough when it was Jose doing his statuesque high dribble 27 feet from the basket to the beat of 50s/Game's "This is how we do" instrumental. Lol seriously?

Huskies, in the traditional white and blue. Hard-working, Canadian, history, everything.

There really would be no other acceptable reason to re-brand, unless it was for this.

This i agree with. Those jersey's are one of the better ones in the league imo, they need to be our main away uni's. And the claw rules. tweaking it a little, getting rid of the chevrons is all we need imo.

i think a rebrand is pointless and unneeded, but i too would be cool with this.

How about-

Home: Keep the Red/White (minus chevrons + added canadian logo on shorts)

Away: Black/Red (Minus Chevrons + added canadian logo on shorts)

Alternate: Blue/White (Huskie's?), represents history, city colors

Perfect. You just saved MLSE millions in research - now we can afford the GM - get it done.

Wha? - when you could have theater lighting?

An organ would be nice, and less of the other accompanying noise and gimmickry. Just enough of the old-time sounds that help crowds zero in on the action, as if it were meaningful.

As for the name, if it has to change, I'd say go with the Toronto Ice, or the Toronto Maple Berries.
