The changes are subtle, but make all the difference. The major difference is that green is no longer in the color palate. The look is sharper and more aggressive. Here is the description from Timberwolves.com.
The tweaked Timberwolves uniforms reflect the evolution of the Timberwolves brand into a sleeker, simpler and more mature look. The most noticeable change from the previous version is the omission of green from the color palette, as the new look features only the team’s primary colors of blue, silver, black and white. The familiar tree line that had adorned the neck of the two previous jerseys has been replaced with a crisper, cleaner look and the side panels have been simplified as well. The updated jerseys will also feature an updated font for the numbering that features more traditionally-shaped numerals.
While the updated uniforms will remain the same white (home) and blue (road) colors, the team will also debut a third alternate road uniform midseason. The Wolves have been without an alternate road look since the uniforms were re-designed prior to the 2008-09 season.
I will bet $5 the third uniform is black. Not like the third uniform during the KG era.
When the previous version was released, I was not a fan. For lack of a better phrase, the uniforms had not teeth and were compared to WNBA uniforms.
While the changes are minor, and some people will probably not even realize the jerseys are different from last season, but I love the new look.
I can not say the same thing about the Jazz or Clippers new uniforms. And that is not a homer comment.
