The Warriors have been a name that has been thrown around a lot as an alternative for years now and there's a reason why. The team gets to honor Native Americans without resorting to stereotyping. If Dan Snyder didn't want to change the name because he felt it honored the native population, this is the best option.

Warriors are strong, determined and fearless. This is the perfect name for the team.

Sports editor Dan Tran talks with former Texas Southern running back Randall Newsome about athletes' role in activism and the HBCU experience.

The Warriors may be the first choice for some, but others want to veer away from anything Native American altogether. If that is the case, the Red Wolves may be the best option.

When it comes to generic names, it doesn't get plainer than Warriors. The Red Wolves is unique and the players are starting to fall in love with it. As an added bonus, the team gets to keep the HTTR hashtag that has become a battle cry for the fans on social media.

The Warriors' name can stay with Golden State. Washington should roll with the Red Wolves.
