Timbewolves bring back 1990’s throwback jerseys for upcoming NBA season

The Minnesota Timberwolves franchise announced that the team will bring back the cartooon-ish, pine-tree jerseys the team wore from 1996-through 2008.

The team’s Classic Edition throwback uniforms with the iconic pine tree green trim with primary white and black uniforms will be featured in five games during the 2018-19 NBA season.

The black away jerseys with green tree lining worn by the likes of Kevin Garnett, Stephon MarburyWally Szczerbiak, Sam Mitchell, Doug West, and Sam Cassell will be worn by current Wolves Karl Anthony-Towns (hopefully), Anthony Wiggins and Jimmy Butler is making a comeback to celebrate the Minnesota’s 30 year anniversary of joining the NBA as an expansion team in 1988-89 season.

The new-old jerseys edition will make their debut on October 31 when Minnesota takes on the Utah Jazz at the Target Center. Click here to learn more about the Minnesota throwbacks at NBA.com.

We recall a young, even-more-slender Garnett balling out in these the black alternate Minnesota Timberwolves jerseys. We may not have known it at the time, but the design complete with Frankenstein-esque lettering and green pine trees lining the jersey and shorts were fire. These jerseys were big when the Wolves were succesful as they were contenders to make a deep Western Conference in the late 1990’s so this wasn’t just style but team success associated with these now-iconic throwback Timberwolves jerseys.
