Nike — which has taken over the NBA’s uniform and apparel contracts starting this season — has rolled out some good new looks. Such as bringing back the original teal in Charlotte.
Friday Nike rolled out the 30 “Statement” jerseys for each team — and a few teams are making a real statement with them.
None more so than the Timberwolves.
That’s some 1980s neon throwback fashion there. I just hope on the nights the team wears these coach Tom Thibodeau has a matching tie. Where did that look come from? Well…
While most teams went with a fresh variation of their existing uniforms, a few went out of the box. The Warriors did, not in the color scheme way of Minnesota, but it’s a different look for Golden State.
Here’s a group shot where you can see a number of the “statement” jerseys.
A few of these I really like, such as the Thunder’s statement.
But Minnesota… damn.
