|T'Wolves Unveil Modified Uniform
To Be Worn Next Season
The T’Wolves during the upcoming season will wear a “slightly modified uniform.” The most “noticeable difference is the disappearance of green from the palette, leaving blue, silver, black and white as the colors.” The font style for the numbers “has also been altered.” The T’Wolves will wear “white at home and blue on the road, but they also plan to introduce an alternate road jersey at midseason” (AP, 8/16). Meanwhile, the T’Wolves “finalized their eight-game exhibition schedule” yesterday, highlighted by the team’s participation in the NBA Europe Live series and a trip to Syracuse Univ., where G Jonny Flynn and F Wesley Johnson played. The team will open the preseason on Oct. 4 against the Lakers at London's O2 arena. The European trip also includes an Oct. 6 game in Paris against the Knicks (ST. PAUL PIONEER PRESS, 8/17).
STRIKING A NEW NOTE: In Utah, Loren Jorgensen notes the Jazz yesterday “showed off the team’s new look during a fan fest.” The new “navy blue-based road uniform” features the “old-style Jazz musical note logo on the chest in white and a gold number” on the stomach and back. The new home uniforms are “white with green numbers, navy letters with the Jazz note logo and gold stripes on the side.” The team also unveiled an “800-pound banner on the northeast side” of EnergySolutions Arena featuring F Al Jefferson, F Paul Millsap and G Raja Bell in the new jerseys (DESERET NEWS, 8/17).
HOT TICKET: In Boston, Fee & Raposa report the Celtics’ Oct. 26 home opener against the Heat is “one of the hottest tickets on the secondary market.” The average cost of a seat to the game is $460. That is the “second-highest Opening Day ticket in the NBA” behind the Heat’s Oct. 28 home opener against the Magic, which is selling for an average of $550 (BOSTON HERALD, 8/17).
