NBAP.com Visited With Karl-Anthony Towns
Karl Talked About Devin Booker
Here are some quotes from Karl:
“NBPA: Since the season ended, you’ve made different entertainment appearances, like attending the ESPYs, making a cameo on Gamer’s Guide to Pretty Much Everything and being a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. What have been your summer highlights?
KAT: Definitely I would say the Disney show. I love acting. I had a lot of fun doing it, and it was a huge honor to just be part of that show. Cameron Boyce is awesome, everybody was great. From there, I think probably just doing the Foot Locker commercial with some of my best friends, D’Angelo Russell and Devin Booker, was awesome.
Also, I had a chance to do a special thing: enjoy some time with my family. I haven’t gotten a lot of time with my family since I was in high school. So for the first time in two years, I got to go home and actually spend some time with them—see my niece and nephew grow up a little more than I ever was able to do. So I had a lot of fun.”
Karl Talked About His Game
“NBPA: How do you see your game evolving?
KAT: I think it’s going to be much much better. I’ve had a whole season to learn under KG [Kevin Garnett]. I just feel that I can be a much better player. Having a whole year to learn and have the whole year to see for myself what it takes, I feel I’m going to be a much better leader from a player standpoint. I will take what I’ve learned in one season and build upon it. It’s going to be awesome.”
Karl Talked About His Game On and Off the Court
“NBPA: What are your personal and team goals for next season?
KAT: Personal goals are based on team. We’ve got to make the playoffs. We’ve got to do something special, and it’s up to us to continue to work and to make that happen.
NBPA: What are your goals off the court in the community?
KAT: I’m just trying to find ways to help a lot of people and help in cancer research. Both of my grandfathers have died from cancer. Also, I want to help the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Twin Cities in Minnesota. So I’ve been trying to find different ways of not only helping people in Minnesota, but around the world.
NBPA: How do you carry on the impact that your grandfathers had on you?
KAT: Listening to my parents—really just taking every single thing they told my parents and using it to my advantage.”
