When I think about it, they could've made the basketball in the logo the steel blue they use now. It would've contrasted much better.

According to @ColorWerx it actually is the exact same blue.

I didn't realize the Timberwolves had a rastafarian flag for their supporting colors.

"Supporting colors" is a bit misleading, especially for the yellow and red since they were only used for the tongue and eyes of the wolf, respectively.

There's no way this blue is the same blue as they currently use.  Someone tell colorwerx to update the blue pantone to what it actually is.  Looks along the lines of Oklahoma City's powder blue?  or Carolina Panther blue?  Any blue darker than this, including the current Wolves blue would ruin the logo

I definitely trust ColorWerx a lot more than a mockup of a t-shirt.

Not a mockup of a shirt.  All of the licensed product being sold right now has that lighter shade of blue http://store.nba.com/Minnesota_Timberwolves_T-Shirts/Mens_Minnesota_Timberwolves_Fanatics_Branded_Blue_Primary_Logo_T-Shirt

 

You do realize that's not an actual photograph, right?  They photoshop the color and logo onto a basic stock T-shirt image.  You can look at the same product for any other team, and if you look close you can tell by the shadows and details its the same shirt, just altered for color with a different logo pasted over.   

 

I'm not saying that color is right or wrong, but I do know those license shop images are notoriously varied.  And, generally speaking, ColorWerx isn't just guessing.  He's kind of careful about that.

Well he originally had a different gray listed and updated it today.  I was thinking the blue needed to be updated as well.  I'm not questioning his abilities but with a brand new unveil, it's only natural to have a mix-up or two until the dust settles, even for a savant.

That's extremely disappointing.  Ruins the entire logo in my opinion.  Look at how much better the logo looks with a lighter shade of blue in the ball.  Everything blends together otherwise.  Hoping that shade of blue is completely absent from the jerseys at least and they go strictly with Navy, Gray, Bright Green, & white.

The issue here is that the old Timberwolves logo didn't really have large distribution of blue in it like it does now, so when you actually see the color applied like it is now it's jarring. The question is which blue will make it to the away jersey?

Do you know where to find the official colours for all 30 teams?

You (or a mod) should probably delete this post...the NBA doesn't like that info being regularly available.

Exactly. Even if it is used just to prove someone wrong.  Isn't that why the forum had to delete the entire font section/thread?

That shade of blue has been the color of the Wolves' blue jersey for 20+ years and the other colors never blended in with it.  I would be highly surprised if the lighter blue was completely absent. Other teams use lighter blue/navy blue just fine (even if it is overused).  Plus, there's really no need to look like the Seahawks.

Yeah I usually wouldn't post it, I just get tired of seeing people getting adamant about stuff when there is hard facts to the contrary. I took it down though.

While I'm not thrilled with this rebrand, I would actually prefer that the Wolves stick with just navy, neon green, and white (and maybe silver).  The two-tone blue not only looks dated, but it also muddles up their look.  I don't really care that they've been using that lighter blue for 20+ years; this is supposed to be a total rebrand and part of a rebrand is dropping things that need to be dropped.  Sticking with just one blue (preferably the navy blue, as it goes better with the neon green) would make their identity look less muddled. 

 

I don't understand the issue about them sharing a color scheme with the Seattle Seahawks.  We are talking about a color scheme that is relatively rare in pro sports, and would certainly be unique in the NBA.  I don't get these inter-sport sharing of color scheme complaints.  When the Nets rebranded, I remember a lot of complaints, but I don't recall anyone saying, "They look too much like the White Sox with that color scheme," because, well, different league, different sport.  Teams in different sports are allowed to share color schemes, and more power to them if they are at least unique color schemes in general. There is nothing wrong with that.
