  • New Name For The Young Gunz? You Decide

    With DeRozan, Weems, Johnson, Davis and Wright. These guys can all play above the rim.

    So maybe we should replace the nickname "Young Gunz" with "Fly'n Raptors"

    How about "The Sense Of Entitlements"? Seriously, don't players typically have to earn nicknames? Its pretty sad in itself that they had to create their own current nickname. I'm pretty sure it's clearly stated in the nickname handbook and guidelines that it's douche baggery to invent your own nickname. I've let it slide until now but this thread, I don't know, it's time to let it alllllll out!

      They (Weems,DD,Amir- Father Jack) didn't create the nickname Young Gunz themselves- Wills Richardson, a Raptor security consultant came up with it: http://www.thestar.com/sports/basket...rs-some-sizzle

      Folks have no idea yet talking like they do- get a clue.lol

        There was a choice of "ain't earned no nickname yet"

            They did not create it.

            The questions are

            What does someone have to do to earn a nickname? or

            Do they even have to earn it?

            I am sure that you were given a few nicknames when you were young. I know I had my share. I never felt I earned the ones I didn't like but thought I earned the ones I did like.

            Bargnani has a nickname. How come no on the forum uses it?

                    +100. No matter how many times people get corrected, they still put up comments as if the players gave themselves that name. Again...THEY DIDN'T GIVE THEMSELVES THE NAME!!!! And big deal if they did. We finally have a identity and people have issues. Maaaan.

                            They gotta revamp the logo. I remember somebody on here awhile ago said we should switch the logo with the F-22 Raptor, but instead of just doing that we gotta get an artist to render our beloved dino geared up, wearing camo and a sick headband flying the F-22 Raptor. Then switch the young-gunz name to the Dino-Bombers.

                              I still like the "Fly'n Raptors"

                              JuJu also liked it when I tweeted him last night. Got a big kick out of it.

                              You guys/gals who are on Twitter might want to welcome him to the Raptors if you haven't already.

                              I am sure that he would appreciate it.
