In case you couldn’t tell, it’s uniform week around these parts. We kicked that off Monday and Tuesday by discussing two of the worst jerseys in franchise history. In this edition, we’re going to discuss what are, in my opinion, the best uniforms in Timberwolves history.
Here’s a good reference point for some of the options:
For most of us, this is a clear three horse race between options two, four, and nine. As much as I love the Prince unis (more on those tomorrow), those are the least exciting of the three. From there, this fashion icon just cannot help himself when it comes to those classic blue and green jerseys with the white trim.
Maybe it’s just nostalgia of seeing Kevin Garnett rock those bad boys, but I think they’re just truly phenomenal. They bring out all the best of the Timberwolves color combo, which is the blue and forest green. That merchandise was simply gorgeous.
I don’t even really know what else to say about them, they’re simply beautiful. I love that the Wolves have occassionally brought back the black jerseys with the tree trim, and I hope they consider doing the same with these.
Can you imagine how fresh D’Angelo Russell and Malik Beasley would look in those vintage Hardwood Classics? Jarrett Culver would probably turn into prime Andre Igoudala once he threw that J on.
Look good, feel good, play good. The absence of these uniforms is the ONLY thing standing in the way of the Timberwolves and regular postseason appearances.
We’ll break down the other two options over the next couple of days, but for now, leave your thoughts/opinions below.
