  1. https://twitter.com/Timberwolves/status/1197167853243383808?s=20
  2. New Rockets alternate and uni reveal June 20
  3. Summer League started yesterday. Nike has a new template for all teams.The warmup gear reflects the updates...new wordmark is on the front of the jersey?
  4. Minnesota didn't jump the gun. The link posted was a backdoor to the site through a google image search. Basically public DRAFT, the actual new threads website on timberwolves.com never had this. (http://www.nba.com/timberwolves/newthreads) This was just poor site security.
  5. I kinda find it funny how they are referencing SuperBowl LII and the"bold north" withe Minnesota hosting but put wolves on the front of a "city" uniform. Missed opportunity to use that connection for this season only with Purple both referencing Prince and the super bowl marketing. https://www.mnsuperbowl.com/newsroom/photos-logos

  7. Timberwolves new marketing campaign is using #AllEyesNorth The repeating tree pattern from last year was nice and some thought it might show on the uniform at some point, but now clear they are going in a pretty minimalist route. Interesting use of the rune A in design and how grouping illicits multiple readings: north arrow, simple silhouette of a tree, forest, etc and some nice graphics gifs to help launch the campaign https://twitter.com/Timberwolves/status/918116601001541632
  8. I'm really hoping one of the jerseys to be revealed is gray with white as the top of shoulders and bottom of shorts. The second line could be the green. Maybe ill mock it up later Think a gray wolf treking through the snow and the snow on its back.
  9. It definitely gives a marine feel. To be fair...Minnesota is the Land of 10,000 lakes. It may not be by the sea but there is plenty of credibility to a Marine inspired look for a team that represents Minnesota even if it is an odd direction. Hopefully the other two uniforms have more of a forest/wolf inspired appearance. I like a lot of what Minnesota is doing, but there has not been a cohesive presentation of the identity yet. That's the problem. They provided a micro site explaining a lot of the ideas of the logos and colors with videos, but then just they kinda just sent tweets with photos of the jerseys... Hopefully there is a nice summary at some point of the identity; The jerseys, the court, the logos, etc. which could shed light on some of the basis of ideas that have been presented so far, even if that concept isn't what people expected, it would provide insight.
  10. 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.
  11. Almost the entire Northwest Division could have a Navy Away Icon Jersey. OKC may even have a navy jersey of some kind. That would leave only Portland and they are black, so call it a wash, all of the NW Division teams could potentially have a dark navy/black jersey. Its interesting to see how many of the teams share similar colors, maybe something, maybe nothing, but color on color match ups won't work if the colors are the same...
  12. Oh but imagine this versus an "aurora green " Minnesota jersey....

  14. Wolves' rookie Justin Patton was introduced yesterday, of course no images of posing with new uniforms, but he did take photos decked out in random non-nike, non-adidas Wolves gear including an awesome varsity jacket. I also think its kinda cool that the fitbit logo almost comes across as a snowflake given the team is from Minnesota. Jimmy Butler is being introduced on Thursday in the Mall of America rotunda.
