Minnesota Timberwolves’ Purple Jerseys Pay Tribute To Prince

The T-Wolves City Edition jerseys fittingly honor the Purple One.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are next in line for a uniform update via Nike’s “City Edition” collection of NBA jerseys. 

The “City Edition” jerseys are a nod to each respective city’s identity, which makes the Timberwolves’ take on it that much better.

Revealed by The Ringer, the upcoming jersey adopts a purple color scheme which pays tribute to the late icon and Minnesota legend, Prince.

The font used on the uniform is similar to Prince and The Revolution’s 1984 album (and the film) Purple Rain.

Prince shockingly passed away on April 21, 2016. Details are still forming in regards to a release date and pricing. 

Be on the lookout for more details.
