Podcast: Karl-Anthony Towns and the up-and-coming Minnesota Timberwolves

New, comment

We talk to David Naylor of Canis Hoopus about Karl-Anthony Towns, Andrew Wiggins, Zach Lavine, and the future of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Nate Parham, Bram Kincheloe, and Ivan Bettger continue to explore the NBA landscape outside of the Bay. In this episode we talk to David Naylor of Canis Hoopus. We talk about the Wolves' young core of Karl-Anthony Towns, Andrew Wiggins, and Zach Lavine. We test David's devotion to KAT with theoretical trade offers, draw comparisons between Lavine/Monta Ellis and Sam Mitchel/Byron Scott, and somehow bring it all back together by talking about the Portland Trailblazers.
