Karl-Anthony Towns could be the best participant particularly when accounting for the fact he’s still just 23 years old, discussed up to now.
He is about to average at least 21 points and 12 rebounds for the third time in four seasons. Only 15 players during NBA history have done more often. Add a triple and it is Towns with three seasons and four total for each other player present and past. This is volume splashing. Since the start of 2016-17, his 39.8 three-point percentage is 14th highest among players with 300-plus makes.
Coming from the All-Star fracture, Towns has established himself into the stratosphere. Over his past seven states, he has averaged 35.1 points, 14.1 rebounds and 3.4 assists while shooting 59.7 percent from the field and 48.9 percent from range.
“It is just joking,” Timberwolves rookie Josh Okogie stated, per The Athletic’s Jon Krawczynski. “We are all witnessing it.”
But Minnesota’s challenge is finding someone else that can innovate alongside Towns. Andrew Wiggins is a volume scorer paid like a superstar. The rest of the roster is comprised of youngsters or vets who figure to best out as part players.
Unless this front office experts a choice, it’s tough to tell Towns will get.
