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. 

And that's why you always save the website's images to your hard drive, kids. :)

The Northern lights on the Twolves unis are gorgeous but the uniform itself is too monochrome!!! 5 steps up and 5 steps backwards.

No one notice tire pattern on Cavs shorts? If they want to giving nod to Goodyear, they should go with Navy instead of black to reference famous Goodyear Blimps.

Goodyear must have paid a pretty penny to get tire patterns on both the alternate jerseys (They say the lines on the black jersey are supposed to represent the sharpness of a sword but I see it as more of a tire pattern)

Yeesh. At first glance I'd swear Adidas still outfitted the league. DSBGPZ3UIAAk6nK?format=jpgDSBGO1CUMAAmu2i?format=jpgDRDgDP0XkAA4dUS?format=jpg

 

Those aren't game quality jerseys of course they look like crap.

I think he's talking about the stripes on the side looking like adidas stripes.

I keep looking at the Cavs shorts and thinking they are playing Browns dress-up... But yeah, blimp silver? How did we miss that??

This is a great read about the creative process of the Jazz's 'City Edition' jersey and court. Truly a must read for this board (and thread).

 

READ: http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/21868878/zach-lowe-utah-jazz-new-nike-jerseys-featuring-delicate-arch-nba

 

It also provided this gem ...

 

Quote

The intent is for teams to unveil a new city edition jersey each year, but the Jazz are talking to Nike and the league about using this look again next season.

 

They are also already at work on the next city edition, regardless of when they debut it. It will celebrate another part of the state -- and likely another set of natural elements.

 

"We like to say Mother Nature played favorites with Utah," Starks says.

As a Blazers fan, I absolutely love these. The plaid pattern looks much better here than it did in the 2K screenshot, and it really is a brilliant element that not only fits the city of Portland, but pays tribute to Dr. Jack at the same time. I’m curious to see how the shorts look and how those side stripes look in their entirety, though.

Agreed. Gotta say, I love the whole Blazers set but I still can't wait for the day the finally remove silver from their set (it just doesn't make sense anymore with their new brand).

I'm actually thinking the pattern is a nod to the "Guardians of Traffic" art deco statues located in downtown Cleveland near the Q. Not only do they have the same pattern, they have the same pointed top as the jersey stripes.

Rendering "ripcity" in a single color and not adding in a space makes it into one silly word, instead of a moderately silly two-word nickname. I really don't care for this Blazers jersey or their red one. Both would benefit greatly by adding white back in, even in small amounts.

Agreed. The collar is the worst part in my opinion. The front is charcoal while the back involves orange and blue. That in addition to the yellow outline on the numbers makes this completely unpalatable.
