Stumbled upon this, figured it would be interesting...

The Timberwolves have decided to change their logos and uniforms for the first time in 12 years. Not much changes have been made, but I really think they look a bit more modern. Just like what we did a few years back.

Old: New:

Alternate logos:

I really like the alternate with the wolf howling. It looks a lot like the old logo.

No word on what the uniforms will look like, then again I haven't checked UniWatch.

Opinons?

New logo is better. They really need to change their circa 1998 unis as well, good to hear they are.

The old logo looks like it could be a ride at Busch Gardens.

Their new uniforms are identical to Dallas'. I'll try to find a pic.

Whoops. It was New Orleans that I was thinking of:

here's a possible leak courtesy of the NBA's official uniform spoilers...NBA Live

(got from sportslogos.net forum)

not sure of the validity due to the fact that jaric is still on the twolves here when he's currently in memphis and how these uni's are still using the number style from the old logo's font style.

that's just a fashion jersey, though they will be getting new unis aswell. Possibly with the reintroduction of pintstripes

I really wish the Pacers would change unis marking the new era of Pacers basketball. I don't like our current ones anyway. I like our yellow alternates the most though. I wish that was our home primary.

Man, that's not cool. You'd think an NBA team would have enough money to hire a decent designer instead of ripping off artwork from Amarok.

Best music player in existence, for what it's worth.

I knew I recognized that logo from somewhere! Yeah - that is kind of just being lazy.

It's about time they changed it. The new logo is better, but I was hoping for something more drastic. Meh...I suppose people in Minnesota can only move so fast... ;)

In all fairness, the original logo is what inspired the new one. You can take it any way you want, but I think the TimberWolves have this one.
