Karl-Anthony Towns is one of the most versatile rookie big men to emerge in the NBA in a considerable amount of time. Towns talked about how he will work on getting even better in the offseason.
"I've always been a big philosopher of in the offseason you work on every single facet of your game," said Towns. "Don't pinpoint something. Because you limit yourself if you specialize in something, and I'm not a specialist in anything. I'm a person and a player who bases off of versatility, trying to do every single thing really well. That's what I'm going to do this summer. I'm going to do everything I can to my body, to my physical skill set, even adding some components that I feel I can add. I'm just going to do that to be the most complete player I can be."
Towns spent his rookie season being mentored by Kevin Garnett.
"Me and him talked about basketball, but we had other conversations where we were out there. Just joking around, being funny to him, and we're just laughing about it during the middle of the game. Like I said, he's like an older brother to me. And I was his younger brother. We just always tried to find ways to be doing something with each other or just laugh about something or just talk. We had that kind of rapport. We had that kind of trust and feeling for each other."
