After a steady ad campaign and a couple teasers, the Timberwolves have a new logo.
Announced during halftime of Wolves-Thunder, the final home game of the season, the Timberwolves finally were able to announce the new look going forward.
The announcement was set to a truly, awesomely well done video, narrated by MN hip hop royalty Slug, Prof and POS, and followed by a performance by the latter two.
Here’s the video they showed at the Target Center. Apologize for any camera movement. I’m not a pro. My arms got tired. (Update: the Timberwolves uploaded the video to their Twitter account. As masterful as my shaky phone vid was, this is better.)

A somewhat similar design to the new-ish secondary logo from a few years ago, one of the key differences here is the infusion of green. Neon green.
The green is mostly prevelant on what is supposed to be a rendition of the North Star. Given past ads, it’ll be interesting to see how much they incorporate green into the actual uniforms. It could be more than the logo lets on. The other noticeable change is the slight alteration of the Wolf itself, though even that is close to the secondary logo from a few years ago.
I dunno, I like it. What do you think of the new look?
