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.
I write the words I'm too uncomfortable to say.
