Karl-Anthony Towns grew up in New Jersey but he's quickly acclimated to living in Minnesota with the Timberwolves.
“A lot of times, I talk to my friends and family and I’m always trying to rush back to Minnesota,” Towns said Wednesday. “This is where I call home.”
Towns was at a basketball camp at Hopkins High School in Minnesota.
“I have a lot of my blood and sweat and tears here,” Towns said. “I have a certain thing with Minnesota. I always want to come back here.”
Towns tries to get back to Minnesota as often as possible during the summer.
“I love being here,” Towns said. “Hopefully, I can spend the rest of my career here.”
Towns has been talking to his Wolves' teammates regularly.
“We’re concocting a plan to be the best Timberwolves team that’s come around in a long time,” he said. “A lot of people tend to think that we’re the Timberwolves, and we’re at the bottom of the barrel,” he said. “I just want everyone to know that we’re coming. Just remember us, remember who we were for the last 13 years, because things are about to change.”
