Karl-Anthony Towns:
“I’m very happy with the way I’ve been playing defense this year. Offensively it is what it is. We all know what that’s going to be. I think a lot of people doubted my defense and I’m just here to shut the haters up & I think I’m doing a good job of that.” – 10:40 PM

Jarred Vanderbilt on guarding Karl-Anthony Towns:
“KAT bag it’s just deep. He’s so versatile, he can play anywhere on the court. I think it’s just hard to scout him, because he can do whatever. He’s poppin, he’s rollin, he’s playin in the post, midpost, elbow. He’s a nightmare.” – 10:20 PM

More on this storyline

Is there any reason to believe Towns wants to leave Minnesota? Krawczynski: Not at the moment, no. Towns is in his seventh season with the Timberwolves. He has said many times that he wants to win in Minnesota and doesn’t want to go elsewhere to do it, including at the end of last season when he said he hoped to have a career like Kobe Bryant or Tim Duncan, two decades with one team. That said, there are those around the league who are watching his situation closely. Towns has had six GMs and five head coaches since he was drafted No. 1 overall in 2015. The Wolves have made the playoffs just once in his time here. If you’re looking for the next star player to want to move, he would be high on a lot of lists. But every chance he has been given to express frustration, including today, he has been adamant that he is on board and wants to be a part of the solution in Minnesota. -via The Athletic / November 5, 2021
Karl-Anthony Towns: Just changed my password. We solid on here now -via Twitter @KarlTowns / November 4, 2021
