Real Minnesota basketball is almost back!
With the WNBA celebrating it’s 25th season this year, Nike has worked with all 12 teams to release 3 new jerseys for each franchise.

Player Numbers will return on the front.
Each team will have 3 jersey editions:
- “Explorer” (team color)
- “Rebel” (female empowerment storytelling)
- “Heroine” (home white) pic.twitter.com/4HdNWTt1Sj
Now, let’s take a look at the Lynx new threads!
Each specific jersey history and detail is broken down in full at this website: https://lynx.wnba.com/her/
Personally, I think there’s something to like about each one of these. I was geeked to see the championship white finally return, despite the excess of empty space for the Heroine Edition. The Explorer Edition looks plain at first glance, but the subtle lynx pattern/spots on the sides are a beautiful touch and may be my favorite jersey of the bunch. And of course, the Rebel Edition are the most unique of the bunch with their homage to 1st Avenue.
As of this minute, none of the Lynx sets are available for purchase yet, sadly. Nike has only released a few jerseys available now (Storm; Stewart, Aces; Cambage, and Liberty; Ionescu), but I’m assuming more will be out soon.
In the meantime, which ones are you planning to cop???
Next up for is the 2021 WNBA draft which will take place in less than week, on April 15th. The Lynx hold the 9th pick of the 1st round.
