The Minnesota Timberwolves recently released their Classic uniforms for the 2018-19 season. Let’s take a look back and rank each uniform worn throughout the franchise’s history.
The Minnesota Timberwolves franchise doesn’t have a whole lot to be proud of over their nearly three decades of existence.
Even the jerseys haven’t been much to write home about, if we’re being honest. But that doesn’t mean we can’t rank them!
Believe it or not, there have been (unofficially) 15 different versions of Timberwolves uniforms going back to the inaugural season of 1989-90 if we include home, road, away, and alternates. (We won’t talk about special holiday designs or the Minnesota Muskies ABA throwbacks.)
Each jersey design will invoke specific memories for long-time Wolves fans. For instance, I grew up in the heart of the Garnett era, and that will, admittedly, affect my rankings somewhat. But there will surely be a level of objectivity here, too.
We’ll lump the bottom five designs together so that we don’t belabor the point that, well … there have been some pretty awful jersey designs that the franchise has trotted out there.
Then, we’ll move a bit more methodically through the top 10 as we savor any positive memories we can find associated with each set of threads.
Let’s get into it.
