I saw that interview. At the very end, Wade starts talking to somebody off camera (sounded like Shaq) about how lame the new name was.

Well, they've chucked "Gold".

They still refuse to consider Warriors, which is what almost everyone wants it to be, but now they're starting over and involving people in the process.

Indian mascot debate aside, why does Warriors have to refer to Indians?

It doesn't.

In fact, the only Indian guy they trot out that says the name Warriors is offensive to Native Americans is from the northern extremes of Wisconsin. Around here no one has a problem with it.

Except the mega-politically correct Father Wild of Marquette.

Well, here are a couple old logos which use Indians:

But that was then. Obviously, warriors are not exclusive to American Indians and a new logo I'm sure would not use an Indian.

There's no real problem, just a manufactured controversy.

I like the PTI suggestion - The Golden Whizzinators.
