The NBA’s Minnesota Timberwolves will honor Prince with special purple and black alternate uniforms.
The team worked with Prince’s estate to incorporate multiple visual references. From the font — reminiscent of the 1980s Prince era — to the purple most closely associated with Prince, the uniform speaks of his legacy and bond with the Twin Cities.
The T-wolves also note that Prince enjoyed basketball as both a player and a fan. “From his days playing at Bryant Junior High and Central High in South Minneapolis, through countless pick-up games while on the road with bandmates around the world, he enjoyed the camaraderie and competition of the game.” (NBA.com)
