Wolves unveil new Northern Lights-inspired uniforms

The Minnesota Timberwolves have unveiled their new Statement Edition uniforms for the upcoming season.

The Northern Lights-inspired uniforms feature the green from the team’s previous Aurora Green Statement uniforms on a new Shadow Grey background.

“Like the team’s namesake on the hunt under the Northern Lights, the Timberwolves Statement Edition uniform is reflective and representative of the team’s alter ego and carries a confident and driven attitude,” Timberwolves and Lynx Chief Marketing Officer Mike Grahl said. “Fans will get to feel and bring a whole new energy to Statement Saturdays.”

The organization says the colors are symbolic of a wolf’s nature “as it carves a path through the dark woods, guided by the glow of the Northern Lights.” Additionally, the “M” and “V” letters on the chest feature fang-like detailing, symbolic of animalistic attributes. The uniform also features the return of the Jordan Brand’s Jumpman logo, which will be on all NBA Statement Edition uniforms this year.
