Minnesota Timberwolves managed to make their way into the NBA playoffs through the play-in tournament and are likely to be kicked out right after the season denver nuggets, This is mainly due to the lack of leadership presented by a Karl-Anthony Towns. Quite frankly, it’s time for Minnesota to move on from the Kats.
Towns scored 21 points in the first two games against Denver. Kat attempted 12 three-pointers and hit just three. The man is almost 7 feet tall and refuses to punish defenses with his size because he wants to be Steph Curry. This twin tower experiment with Rudy Gobert isn’t working, so it’s time to pull out the cities and reshape this roster.
This team has invested in a style of basketball that would have been great 20 years ago, but is now antiquated. Although it has always appeared that Towns has never wanted to play like a big player, his size is one of his most prominent attributes. A guy his size with the ability to shoot is impressive, but doesn’t make a living by it. He could punish other big guys all day long within 12 feet of the basket, then rush out to hit his threes on the spot. Kat doesn’t need to rack up six three-pointers per game, especially if he can’t hit at least 35 percent.
minnesota gave up quite a bit in getting Gobert last off season. There are five players and several first-round picks to get Gobert in a Timberwolves uniform. They traded all that for Gobert and had to go through a play-in to get bounced in the first round. Now they’re seemingly stuck with Gobert, but that doesn’t mean they need to hold onto Towns any longer. Eight years have passed, and he has yet to become the player he was projected to be. maybe jimmy butler right about the towns,
Towns only missed playing in 29 regular season games this year, but it appears that his status as “the man” has already been usurped by Anthony Edwards. The All-Star didn’t have a great game however, posting 41 points in game two, and bounced back with just one to keep Minnesota in the game. Towns hung on the perimeter when he wasn’t hitting shots from the rim.
It’s time to say goodbye to Kat in Minnesota. Everyone knows it. It’s been on the horizon for over a year now. This cannot and should not be “his team” going forward, and KAT needs to take a different position during the off-season. Towns is still an exceptional player, but he won’t be taking your team anywhere but an early offseason. Cancun on three….1-2-3 Cancun!!!
