The Minnesota Timberwolves are well-known for having some of the most creative and stylish jersey designs in the NBA throughout their 35-year history. Both their 90’s and 2000’s uniforms are some of the most recognizable classic jerseys for basketball fans.
Minnesota’s original jerseys from the 90’s were recently re-created by Nike to be used as the Wolves’ classic edition jersey for the 2023-24 season, much to the delight of fans. The Timberwolves’ color palette of blue, green and gray makes for a huge range of design possibilities.
Over the course of history in the NBA, teams have typically worn a home, away, and alternate jersey each season. But when Nike took over production of team uniforms in 2017, they completely changed the landscape of uniform combinations by introducing a brand new system where home and away jerseys are no longer applicable.
The result was a plethora of new jerseys being released by each team, some good and some not so good. The Timberwolves in particular have had 14 new uniform combinations released since the Nike era began. Here, we will look at and rank each of them.
The 14 Timberwolves jerseys of the Nike era ranked:
14. 2017-18 City
This jersey was the first one released under Nike’s new “City Edition” moniker. Unfortunately, it is highly forgettable. In contrast to the Timberwolves’ typically vibrant color palette, the jersey features a solid gray color on gray color scheme.
The word ‘Wolves’ across the front as well as the numbers are colored white, while the name on the back is set to an even deeper shade of gray. The accents going down the side are a nice touch, but that is about the only interesting thing about this jersey.
Most Wolves fans would probably not be disappointed if this jersey never saw the light of day again.
