New uniforms invade the NBA.
HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: So who co-signed that we all like short sleeves on uniforms anyway?
The Minnesota Timberwolves unveiled their new “Lights Out” alternate uniforms that will be worn for 10 games throughout the 2013-14 season. The uniforms debuted on-court at home against the Denver Nuggets and yes, we've got more short-sleeved NBA uniforms. I guess the feedback NBA representatives are getting about short sleeved uniforms is different that what everyone at HoopsVibes thinks. For the record, we're not a fan.
Designed by adidas, the black short-sleeve uniforms are inspired by the rich, sophisticated nightlife of Minneapolis and continue the black uniform tradition the team began in 1996. It features side panels with repeated “M” and “W” patterns to represent the team name. Timberwolves players were involved throughout the design and evaluation process.
“We think our fans are going to really embrace these new uniforms,” said Timberwolves CMO and Sr. VP of Marketing and Communications Ted Johnson. “As we continue to build our brand, it’s very important that we keep giving our fans fresh new looks and opportunities for them to identify with us.”
The jerseys are available for the public to purchase at www.wolvesproshop.com, the official team shop and merchandise outlets at Target Center, and NBAStore.com.
