Timberwolf Or Cujo?

Thanks to the state of Minnesota for being the largest population of wolves, it’s a very fitting name for the team. The logo was pretty intimidating with a wolf appearing near a bunch of trees — it’s the last you would want to encounter on the trails of Minnesota. By the way, anytime I see this, it instantly brings me back to the Kevin Garnett days.

New Faces, New Era

For the first time ever, the Timberwolves underwent some dramatic changes. A new logo, new uniforms, and new faces of a franchise that are ready to compete for the postseason once again. It’s an exciting time to be a Minnesota fan since so much positivity is finally back in the franchise. Believe it or not, Rodney Richardson of RARE design came with not only this design, but designs for Charlotte, Atlanta, Sacramento, and New Orleans.

Sharks Are Relentless And Gifted

Much like Minnesota being the largest population of wolves, San Jose went with the Sharks since so many of them are hovering in the waters of the Pacific Ocean. To me, this somewhat reminds of the movies Jaws, except instead of the shark eating innocent people, he’s chomping the hell out of hockey sticks.

Adding More Flex To The Stick

Sure, the current logo is much more up-to-date than the old logo above while still holding onto the black, blue and orange color scheme on the shark. It makes the old logo look a little bland since the shark in this logo is adding more flex to the chomp of the stick, all thanks to the flex players put into their shots.
