Let's cook! The best thing about Nike taking over as uniform supplier for the NBA was introducing the 4-6 jersey rotation. Each team gets an Association, Icon, Statement, (formally known as home, away, and alternate respectively) and City. Some get a Classic and playoff teams will get an Earned jersey this season. But the City uniform changes every year and typically debut after the first monthish of the season. Which for NBA nerds like myself, that means 30 delicious new leaks a year.
The Timberwolves leak today tells us their City uniform this season is inspired by Minnesota's favorite departed baby boy, Prince. The late singer was an NBA fanatic and of course, a Minnesota native. It's only fitting their most culturally significant son is honored in Purple Rain font in his favorite color. We still need to see the official unveiling to absorb every detail, but from the leak it appears the Timberwolves finally did something right this season.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CHICAGO – Oct. 9, 2018. Today marks a monumental leap in cinematic history. After a weekend of careful deliberation, prayer, and reflection, I have decided that Bradley Cooper is a better actor than Matt Damon. The question of “Are we sure Bradley Cooper isn’t better than Matt Damon?” in an extremely Bill Simmons voice originated while I was driving home after a Thursday night viewing of A Star is Born with Mrs. Kenyon. Originally, the ranking of best male actors in Hollywood was lead by Mr. Damon, with Mr. Cooper climbing his way up the AP polls. After nailing the perfect triple threat performance of actor, singer, and director in A Star is Born, Mr. Cooper has triumphantly knocked Matt Damon off the mountaintop. The sudden shift in power has left me hopeful for this bright future, but undoubtedly depleted. I ask the media to respect my privacy at this time of rest and recovery. All further questions can be referred to my attorney or spokesperson, Mrs. Kenyon.
I write the words I'm too uncomfortable to say.
