Karl-Anthony Towns says it is only ‘a matter of time’ before he is best player in NBA

Karl-Anthony Towns is feeling himself heading into his third NBA season.

In a recent interview with Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated, the Minnesota Timberwolves big man said he believes he can be the best player in the league.

“My confidence has always been so high. I felt coming into the league I could be that easily,” said Towns. “I always knew it was just a matter of time.

“But before I was even drafted, I felt I had that ability, faith and confidence in myself to do that regardless to what team I’m with,” he continued. “I’m very blessed to be with the Timberwolves, because with them I’ve expedited that process a lot.”

It’s a claim that may seem like a stretch to some, but Towns’ development and overall talent at just 21 years old is remarkable. He averaged 25.1 points, 12.3 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks a game last year and can post up, hit a jumper, or go off the dribble, all with equal potency. Towns also has some high hopes for his team as a whole, so you gotta love the confidence heading into the new season.
