Video: Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. roasting Karl-Anthony Towns’ kicks
For New York Giants star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., it seems like he’s having quite a fun time during the 2018 NBA All-Star Game weekend’s festivities at Staples Center in Los Angeles. While mingling with players and celebrities on the court last night, a video was captured of him roasting Minnesota Timberwolves All-Star center Karl-Anthony Towns for the kicks he chose to wear.
A short video of the exchange between OBJ and KAT over the center’s white shoes, which was posted on Twitter by the official Bleacher Report account, can be viewed below.

This seems to be all in good fun, as friends should be able to give each other a hard time like that. Bleacher Report tagged the wrong account when attempting to tag Beckham Jr. in the post, but at least they got Towns’ Twitter handle right.
In just four games, Beckham Jr. had his 2017-2018 NFL season come to a quick end in early October when he fractured his left ankle against the Los Angeles Chargers at MetLife Stadium. On the year, he still finished with 25 catches for 302 yards and three touchdown receptions. It will be very interesting to see how OBJ bounces back in 2018-19 from a lost season due to injury.
Despite an extremely disappointing 3-13 season for the Giants just one year after they made the playoffs with an 11-5 record. New York will have the second overall pick in late April’s 2018 NFL Draft and there are many directions the team could go with in terms of what to do with it.
