Karl-Anthony Towns on Timberwolves playoff hopes: ‘See you in May’
The Minnesota Timberwolves are regarded by many as a team on the rise, and it’s an assessment that Karl-Anthony Towns very much agrees with.
The second-year big man hosted an impromptu Q&A session on Twitter Thursday night, and he was bullish in his prediction for Minnesota this coming season.

It’s been a long time since the Timberwolves made a run at the playoffs, but with new basketball czar Tom Thibodeau running the show and a gifted young core, there is an expectation that Minnesota will take a noticeable step forward this coming season. Some of their longer-tenured players have become frustrated with the stagnation, but this is a franchise that very much appears to be headed in the right direction. May indicates a pretty significant playoff run for a team coming off a 29-win season, so Towns is definitely being bullish, but you have to like the confidence.
