Karl-Anthony Towns: ‘I Want Everyone to Know We’re Coming’

Don’t say you haven’t been warned: the Minnesota Timberwolves are no longer a joke.

Karl-Anthony Towns, last season’s Rookie of the Year, says his squad is ready to take a major step forward.

Stocked with young, burgeoning talent and one of the best coaches in the NBA, the T-Pups have the makings of a force for years to come.

Per the Star Tribune:

Towns — between posing for pictures and signing autographs for campers — said that Minnesota has become his home, that he hopes to play his entire career with the Wolves and that nobody should underestimate the Wolves’ chances. […] “A lot of people tend to think we’re the Timberwolves, we’re at the bottom of the barrel,” Towns said. “I want everyone to know we’re coming. Just remember us. Remember how we were the last 13 years, ’cause things are about to change.”


It’s been a busy summer for Towns. He appeared on a Disney TV show, attended the ESPYs. […] But he said he has found the time to continue working on his craft. He said he has added some new moves he promised to unveil this upcoming season. And he clearly worked on his three-point shot, too.


“I went back to my roots,” he said. “When I was in high school I shot a lot of threes. So I went back to my roots, did some drills I used to do. And it has paid dividends. My shot looks the best it’s looked in four years. I’m really happy.”
