    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.

    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.

    Huskies is a perfect name for a bunch of white pale college kids in cardigans.

    huskies might sound generic but still better than the raptors name which just sounds really out of date given the context it was taken from.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.

    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".

    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.
    I agree. The Raptor is clawing you, tearing at your flesh like a prehistoric dinosaur, you try to sneak up on it, and BAM next thing you know its an eagle soaring high in the sky and you can't get at it. What the hell is a Huskie going to do to an eagle?

    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.

    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.

    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)

    This.

    Dinosaurs were awesome way before Jurassic Park came out. Dinosaurs are still awesome. It isn't a gimmick.

    Also, the claw ball logo is great. I like it a lot more than the Timberwolves' logo (I live in Minneapolis now).
    Dinosaurs may have been popular, but I don't recall the Velociraptor being a well known dinosaur prior to JP. T-Rex, Stegosauras, Triceratops, Brontosaurus (flinstones anyone?) yes, but not Raptors... it was a cheesy, trendy name back then and the stench of amateurness has stuck with this franchise as a baby brother to its American counterparts ever since.

    Not sure why some people don't like the Raptors name - I think it's great. It's unique, cool, and its a friggin dinosaur. Not to mention that raptors or velociraptors are one of the few well known dinosaurs in pop culture.

    Come on guys, cant just throw out 17 years for nothing
