Karl-Anthony Towns is going to take some heat after his latest comments about the 2023 NBA champions, the Denver Nuggets.
The Nuggets won their first title after defeating the Miami Heat in five games, and they celebrated in Denver on Thursday with a parade.
Towns believes his Minnesota Timberwolves had a “most special” season during an interview on “The Pat Bev Podcast.”

“It was more special what we did in Minnesota because we had, like, a month and then we had training camp,” Towns explained. “It was like, ‘You better figure it all out right now, and we’ll really figure it out fast.'”
Towns added that the Nuggets’ experience as a team made it easy for them to put everything together.
“Four years? We did it in four months,” Towns said.

The Timberwolves hadn’t been to the postseason since the 2004 season, which is why emotions ran high when they defeated the Los Angeles Clippers in the NBA play-in tournament to earn the eighth and final seed in the Western Conference.
It also led many to shame the T-Wolves for celebrating because their level of success was obviously not championship-worthy.
They ended up facing the Nuggets in the first round, and Towns couldn’t believe what he saw of them on the court.
“I just played them in the playoffs. Bro, they were telling us our plays,” he said.
“They weren’t even talking. Ball was just going to an area, and the person was there randomly. I was like, ‘How is this possible?'”
Towns’ comments of late have been interesting to say the least. He also suggested that people will say he changed the game when it comes to the end of his career.

“How can you change the game when sometimes we don’t even know you exist?” asked former NBA center and current ESPN NBA analyst Kendrick Perkins.
The Timberwolves have had Towns as part of their core since he was first drafted out of Kentucky in 2014. He is a three-time All-Star, averaging 23 points and 11.2 rebounds in his career.
