The Minnesota Timberwolves have released a new uniform that they are calling the “North Star City Edition”. It emphasizes the “North Star” concept that Minnesota is known for (mostly because of hockey).
There is a giant “star” that only has 4 points. The Wolves have pushed it a little bit since adopting their new logo a few years ago, but this is the farthest they have taken it. Maybe it will grow on me but this looks like another miss. Here is the video released by the Timberwolves. You be the judge.

We are the the North Star State.
The 2020-21 North Star City Edition uniform pays homage to the North Star that shines bright to guide and unite the over 5.6 million people of the State of Minnesota. The uniform’s main hue, midnight black, reflects the mystique and dark characteristics of a Minnesota night – a time when the North Star shines brightest. The collection of stars, running along the right-side panel of the uniform, represents the connection amongst people in Minnesota and around the world. The aurora green trim is symbolic of the vibrant hue that shines by way of the iconic Aurora Borealis – the transformative northern light that breaks through the darkness and is visible in the northern skies of Minnesota.NBA.com/Timberwolves
