If it ends up being that I'll be somewhat disappointed... I liked @Conrad.'s estimations much more. Why have green if it's only going to be used on one jersey?

Amen to that. These look WAY too bland without a splash of green somewhere. Not a good look, imo.

 

Maybe we can hope for one of the "alternate" uniforms to incorporate the green tree pattern, too. Would be a shame to not see it anywhere.

Wish there was some more green, but if the home and away are these, it'll be fine with me. Maybe we will get a black alt, that would be cool. Im not sure how I'd feel about a green alt, but if they had a black uni with the strip across the front being green, I think id like that.

A little tree on the shorts is still far too little. The T-Wolves really dropped the ball here. 

Personally, I love these uniforms. The more I look at them, the better I think they look. But I do wish there was a bit more than a tree.

So do the earlier estimations not seem likely anymore? I don't know why, but I'm holding on to a feeling that the newer ones aren't legit, they just don't seem to fit the brand that the logoset tried to convey. There's also small hints like no logo being on the waistband, despite every single other team so far having one. Maybe I'm just holding out on unrealistic hope.

Not a good look, IMO. They remind me of the Wizards' uniforms, and those aren't very good in the first place.

 

The Timberwolves had it right here, and every change since then has been a downgrade:

I don't mind this at all.

 

I never liked the tree-lined collar.  It always bugged me.

Am I crazy or is there a lime green circular logo on the belt buckle area? I could be seeing things. 

 

The uniforms, if these are correct, seem very off-brand for the T-Wolves. Hopefully they'll impress in the real-life application more than video games and grainy pictures. The Cavs did, so I'm holding out hope still.

I was wondering about that too.  

 

I'm waiting on a better shot of the side.

I am a little confused here. Conrad, didn't you create some home and road mock ups with the green tree side panels based on eye witness account? 

Then there was the "leak" of the green uniform with stripes that was taken down.

Then we see the white set with blue strips.

and there is talk of a "mainly black" uniform, despite the fact that the Wolves eliminated black from their color scheme? 

That is 5 sets right there.

Navy is the "mainly black" uniform I assume.

Washington Wizards of Western Conference or Tampa Bay Lightning of NBA. I'm very disappointing, previous leak shown by Conrad was way better.

As others have stated, a jersey design with multiple horizontal stripes/panels -- especially across the chest and yoke, above the #s -- is the Bullets/Wizards' signature design element.  The Bullets/Wizards have used it in four distinct designs over the course of franchise history (Unseld era, Ruland era, Arenas era gold alts, current unis).  From memory, I can't think of another team who's done it (other than the Jazz's soccer-style sleeved alt and the Nuggs' yellow alt -- and both of those have the stripes across the torso/below the #s).  Why would the Wolves encroach on another franchise's territory -- especially when they have their own signature element (tree-shaped trim) to play with?  It's akin to co-opting the Sonics' arch, the Blazers' diagonal sash, or the Nuggets' rainbow motif. 

 

The shorts kinda look like an Adidas collegiate template -- and that's not a good thing.

The Pacers also used a horizontal stripe across the chest from '85-'90. 

 

For that matter, the Buffalo Braves used diagonal stripes several years before Portland, albiet at a much more acute angle.
