Minnesota Timberwolves

Recommended Posts

I'm glad you guys hate them as much as I do. Wolves fans on twitter are eating this trash up for some reason. Hopefully once the rest of the NBA starts mocking them they'll change them. I don't want my team to look like this during their golden years.

This is the best the wolves have looked since their first uniforms. However the uniform needs more green and a tree somewhere. If they used the original classic blue and green I bet it would look way better.

Needs stripes green.

 

It does, and more.

 

Different doesn't always mean better looking. The new template sucks and it has no historic connection to the team.

 

The Bucks ditched their classic maroon color, at the team's last redesign unveiling. But the changes were so well done that the reception was mostly positive. There's a way to apply change without ruining the core essence of the team's identity. Unfortunately for the T-Wolves, the reason for their new look is change for the sake of change. Not to improve the look.

 

The result: the new unis look like crap.

Oh boy. This looks like some weird, bad, randomly-nautical attempt at a Mavericks alt. But it's the Wolves.

 

This would be okay-at-best for a San Diego expansion team, but I see no rhyme or reason to it being for the Minnesota Timberwolves. It just doesn't make sense.

That's a tough comparison to make, though. The Bucks have a pretty rich visual history from which to draw. The Wolves really don't. I mean, I love the inaugural sets -- and would have loved to see a modernized version of that simple design template — but this is a franchise that's doing everything it can to signal that it's the team of the future. 

 

So I can understand why they came up something that deviates so much from the past.

It's pretty obvious that the entire point of the jersey striping is to draw attention to the swoosh and the sponsor logo. It's the Ree-box from NHL Edge 1.0 taken to the next level.

There you have it: the Minnesota Timberwolves will open two arenas at every major intersection.

In a vacuum, I like the jerseys. Just not necessarily for the Wolves. I know they changed their color scheme, but it doesn't feel very "timberwolves-y" especially without the green. Looks like a a fashion jersey for the Mavs from the PDiddy jersey days.

I spoke to my friend that does marketing for the team, he said they really wanted to do something bold and have a unique look. They felt it's the perfect time to make a big change and try something new.

 

He also said to plan on seeing a lot of the green jerseys.

Honestly they are not bad but SUPER HUGE fail for promoting green and those trees..and not having them anywhere on the jersey.

 

Also no logo on waistband is an eyesore!

But... they didn't try something new. They took the Wizards' uniforms and recolored them in the Mavs' color scheme. It fails on every conceivable level.

Resounding meh. But the lack of green is dumb. As many have said it's the Mavs on the Wizards template.

Everything about this re-brand has been a downgrade with these dull-as-paint uniforms taking the cake.  I'll never understand what was wrong with this set.  The colours were unique to the league & attractive, the template was relevant to the team name and it tipped the hat to the era where they achieved the most success.

The only issue with the set prior to the former is the it had really ugly piping.... if it was streamlined, it'd be a fine look.

These would be great if they were for the Mavs.  Huge wasted opportunity to embrace the lime green; looks like the Blazers are the only team so far to come out ahead this summer and even they blew a golden opportunity to bring back the bauhaus font.
