This time around last year Karl-Anthony Towns was selected as the first overall draft pick of the 2015 NBA Draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves. A huge milestone for Towns, considering he’s the first Dominican-American to accomplish such a feat.
After being crowned Rookie of the Year last month, Towns appears in Footlocker’s new ad alongside future league mates D’Angelo Russell and Devin Booker, as each one shares a word of wisdom with Ben Simmons.
“Getting drafted doesn’t mean a thing, now the real work starts,” says Town, whose mentorship with Kevin Garnett enriched his first year on professional courts. “This isn’t college, this is a grown man’s league.”
Ahead of the 2016 NBA Draft, watch Towns keep it all the way 100.
