Always liked this color scheme and this stripe pattern. Just wish the Seahawks/Maverick and Wizards didn't own them first, respectively.

 

still looks less dated than every other set they've ever had, though... so I say upgrade.

So here's my $.02...Objectively, they are a really sharp, clean, modern uniform with a nice color scheme. For generic double-blue team A, the new Timberwolves uniforms would be a very nice start.

 

However, they are not even close to what I was expecting/hoping for and are not in line at all with what I have come to expect from the Timberwolves from a uniform perspective. The new logos were really nice. Obviously the double blue was prominent, but it seemed like the new green would be featured more than just in a small triangle at the bottom of the shorts. Why even put it there at all? A tree pattern on the side panels, cuffs, sublimated, anywhere would At least give these well designed, but boring uniforms some character. 

 

I don't hate Minnesota's new uniforms, I'm just really disappointed, considering they could have been so much more.They had so much to draw inspiration from. Just a little bit of their bright green, when implemented correctly, can go a long way and they could have owned it. We got something good but It missed the mark, IMO.

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.

 

Someone should Photoshop the Mavs wordmark on the new T-Wolves jerseys.

 

It might look better than what we got.

Blue/green is right there for any NBA team to own and the Mavs and Wolves keep on blowing it.

It's fine I guess. The second blue should be green though. 

 

It's probably their best look since the KG era set though, so it has that going for it.

You guys are too kind, they try to clear 3 levels of matchboxes, but they ALWAYS, ALWAYS, fall underground before reaching them,

Stumbled on this, posted when the white jerseys were leaked. I don't know how reliable the source is, since it is a fan page, but I'm assuming the green jersey is a mock-up from the NBA 2k18 picture that leaked. 

 

This is probably close to if not what we end up seeing.

Funny how people are divided on these. It seems to be 50/50. I think these are sharp. And I do not care so much about the fact that a uniform must mimic the name of the team (especially when one chooses to name his team after an animal). I also think that the minimalist use of green is appropriate, because it has such a small space in the logo anyway. These will still look really fresh in 10 years, especially if KAT, Wiggins and Butler manage to create some magic in the coming future.

 

Thank you Timberwolves for testing something new. I was so incredibly tired of the previous set.

Also noted their new wordmark from their website. Looks quite okay.

Wow this a complete surprise of a uniform. My only complaint is the lack of green. The numbers having green would've been fine.

 

I'm mixed with these unis so far.

After considering it. I think these are easily bottom 3 in the league along with Dallas and Denver. The waste of potential is massive. One of the best logo sets and color ways in the league and you end up with a mix of the Mavericks, Wizards and Walmart summer fashion with a severe lack of your most interesting color. The Garnett years were the best they've had, even though it'd seem outdated today. The next set almost nailed it but ruined it with awful word mark and number font. Then they slowly removed personality from the uniform. Shame.

Maybe the third jersey will have green to silence the critics.

The third jersey will probably be primarily green...which in my opinion makes it even worse. It'll make them look like a totally different team. If they want a green jersey, then they need to have some green on the primaries.

 

The more I see these the more I like the color combo...I am OK with the limited amount of green. And I don't need the tree pattern as much as other fans do.  But it still feels like they swung and missed.  It still looks like a re-colored Wizards summer league jersey or something.

I love Minnesota's new uniforms.  The font on the wordmarks and the numbers is a clear improvement over the previous font.  The smooth curves are much more attractive than the weird angles found on the old font, a font which would have been appropriate for a children's book about a haunted house.

Also, the colours are beautiful; and the stripes are very sharp.  The look is innovative without being undignified. The overall effect is a very comfortable and cool feel.  This is superb.  

(This uniform makes me even more annoyed at the Nets, who should have been able to create a clean look that is as interesting as Minnesota's, instead of their uncreatively drab look.)

These jerseys are unique, but i wish there was a little more consistency between the sets, especially in terms of what the focus of the jersey is. The navy uniform has nice contrast with the white wordmark and number and lower stripe, and the shoulder ist a tonal change. So I tried to give the white uniform a similar effect by making the navy gray and the blue navy.

The Mavs definitely have no excuse now that Minnesota seems to be content where they are. The door's wide open and I sure hope they jump in next season.

There very sharp.  The small touch of green goes with the way their logo is, so that shouldn't be too surprising.  I wonder how some green on the numbers and name would have looked.
