Wolves rookie Josh Okogie attempted to make a play and found himself on the ground. None of his teammates helped him up off the floor. He picked himself up, dusted himself off, and continued with his first NBA action. This didn’t sit well with Karl-Anthony Towns. According to Towns, he and other players on the bench ripped into the people on the floor who didn’t help their teammate up. “That’s not acceptable,” Towns said during a team practice in Santa Monica two days later, “especially in the culture we’re trying to build. We have to establish something great. If we want to be great, we have to establish something great in every single moment.”
After his first taste of NBA action Saturday, Josh Okogie had an unusual observation you don’t hear often from rookies. “In college everything is fast, fast, fast,” Okogie said. “But here everything is so slow.” You might think it would be the other way around, considering the NBA has the world’s elite players. The Timberwolves first-round draft pick tried to clarify what he meant. “It’s not really how fast you go but it’s just how precise and how accurate you can make decisions,” said Okogie, who had 10 points in the victory over the Warriors.
