Minnesota Timberwolves Unveil New Logo April 12, 2017 13:05
As the 2016/17 NBA regular season comes to an end, those teams who are going home early start to give us a glimpse of what they might have planned for next year, and the Minnesota Timberwolves are the first team to come out and showcase their new logo.
While the new Timberwolves logo was actually leaked in the press early, the actual reveal was done at the half time of the Timberwolves game versus the Oklahoma City Thunder last night. The Timberwolves showed a great hype video that recapped the history of the Minnesota franchise and their logo development over the years. Take a look:
After the reveal, there was a mixed reaction to the change - some fans love it, some fans hate it - but that's always to be expected when there's a big change for a team.
The new Timberwolves logo features a new colourway, a mature wolf howling at a basketball and the North Star. Overall the design is more modern and sleek and is said to represent a 'new era' of Timberwolves basketball. The franchise is keen to stress the upward goals of the franchise (having failed to make the play-offs for 13-years straight) and the potential of their young team.
We're now eagerly awaiting the release of images of the new Minnesota Timberwolves jerseys, although that's not likely to happen before the official end of the season, since it will be a Nike NBA jersey, The current Adidas contract runs until the conclusion of the NBA Finals.
Stay tuned for more updates on how the look of the league will be changing for next season, and join the conversation on our social media pages about how you feel about the Timberwolves new logo.
