Two Ways Karl-Anthony Towns Can Evolve His Game Next Year

In his first six seasons, Karl-Anthony Towns has already cemented himself as the second-best player in Minnesota Timberwolves history. Statistically, the former No. 1-overall pick out of Kentucky is everything fans could want in a franchise player.

That list includes 15 Hall of Famers, Joel Embiid, and Towns. With that company, you would think KAT was on the fast track to the Hall of Fame himself — but not so fast, my friend. He plays for the Timberwolves, where nothing is guaranteed.
