The Minnesota Timberwolves found themselves a stud in the 2015 NBA Draft.
Karl Anthony Towns will be the best big man in the NBA within the next two years.
Towns is already one of the most popular young talents in the NBA because of how impressive his play has been in his first two seasons. He is a revolutionary franchise star and looks as if he may take the Minnesota Timberwolves to heights that they have not seen before.
In just 2015-16, Towns won the Rookie of the Year award, was named to the NBA’s All-Rookie First Team, and was the tallest player in NBA history to win the NBA Skills Challenge during the All-Star break. (That counts for something, right?)
The great play of Towns didn’t stop in year two, either, as he’s coming off a season in which he averaged 25.1 points, 12.3 rebounds, and 2.7 assists per game — all besting his per-game numbers from his rookie year. He also became the first player in NBA history to score 2,000 points, grab 1,000 rebounds and make 100 3-pointers in a single season.
And don’t forget: he’s only 21 years old.
In two seasons, Towns has already shown that he’s destined for greatness. With the acquisition of Jimmy Butler, Towns seems as if he is due for a massive increase in not only efficiency, but also effectiveness as well.
Butler might be the veteran star that Towns needs at this point in his career to take the next step in his career. With a unique skill-set, a hard work ethic, and the pieces set around him, it seems that the ceiling for Towns is enormously high.
Karl Anthony Towns has the talent and ability to become not only the best big man in the NBA right now, but one of the best big men in NBA history.
