Karl-Anthony Towns RumorsAll NBA Players
Q. Who’s tougher on you, Thibs or Cal? Karl-Anthony Towns: Haha. Ahhhh … I’ma say Cal. Cal was very hard on me. Thibs is hard on me, but Cal was otherworldly hard on me. It was definitely something I enjoyed, funny enough. I was always able to take the criticism. I was always able to talk to him. They both have love for me.
There’s a word that describes the business partnership between a rising NBA star known by his initials, K.A.T., and a candy bar called Kit Kat: Inevitable. “I feel like it is,” Timberwolves big man Karl-Anthony Towns said. “It’s something too perfect of a match.”
Two seasons into his NBA career, Towns hasn’t yet made the playoffs, but he has a growing list of corporate partners he endorses — double digits and counting with a chocolate-bar ad campaign aimed at an internet audience that launched last week.
He also has deals with Nike, Gatorade, 2K Sports, Beats by Dre and Jack Link’s Beef Jerky. In the Jack Link’s commercials, which have aired throughout the NBA playoffs, he co-stars with none other than Sasquatch himself and demonstrates what has been true for some time: An NBA star needn’t play in New York City or Los Angeles to compile endorsement deals.
