Via fadewayworld.net: Former NBA player-turned-analyst Kendrick Perkins has shared his take on this situation, claiming that Towns only cares about his offensive numbers and nothing else. On Wednesday’s edition of ESPN’s The Jump, Perkins had some strong words towards KAT and his current moment.
Karl-Anthony TownsI’ve been losing for a long time. I’m not trying to do that anymore….You obviously see my patience running low with a lot of things. There’s no excuses, we’ve got to get it done.
Kendrick Perkins“He hasn’t won a game since November and on top of that, have you looked at KAT’s defensive rating? He’s horrible, he’s not guarding the paint, he’s not blocking shots. All he cares about is getting his 25 and 13. Those fools gold numbers,” Perkins said when asked if Towns was going to ask for a trade.
Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns (age 24, 2015 / Round: 1 / Pick: 1st overall) says he has been disappointed with the team’s defeats lately and feels lost on his own patience. He did not make the 2020 All-Star rosters, this despite glittering numbers, and said that he is “desensitized to being disrespected in this league.” Karl-Anthony Towns’ frustration was clearly seen during the game as well. The Wolves are currently 14th in the Western Conference. The Wolves are on a 13-game losing streak. Also, Towns is hurt by Robert Covington’s trade to the Houston Rockets.
