Karl-Anthony Towns’ versatility continues to impress, much like an ex-point guard in Anthony Davis becoming unstoppable in the front court. Competition is his language and within his nature to bring onto the diamond, where he took home the derby title.

Now with high expectations to lead a young Minnesota Timberwolves team, Towns has taken the summer to retreat and refresh. Hopefully that hunger to be the best when no one expects it comes through.
