Minnesota Timberwolves

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.

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.

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.

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.
