To escalate the drama of the Timberwolves season so far, it was rumored that Karl-Anthony Towns and Jimmy Butler may have been involved with the same woman. When Towns viewed the rumor on twitter earlier this September, he was quick to deny any truth to the story and claimed it as nothing but a bit of fake news.
With new rumors being brought up about Towns again, the Timberwolves big man is now back on Twitter to shut down every bit of it.
A gossip outlet named Black Sports Online sent out another fake news rumor about Karl-Anthony Towns through twitter. They claimed that Towns’ ex-girlfriend was upset with him for not taking him back after the so-called misunderstanding with Jimmy Butler. Towns was infuriated about the continuation of these rumors about him, so he was more than happy to give it back to the news organization.
The Timberwolves All-Star big man hasn’t been affected by these fake rumors while on the court, averaging an impressive 22.3 points and 14.4 rebounds per game ever since Jimmy Butler was traded to the 76ers. Minnesota have won the last 6 out of 8 games which has pushed the franchise into 9th place on the Western Conference standings.
There’s been a lot of talk about how the Sixers have struck gold with this trade to bring Butler into the mix. However, the Timberwolves have certainly benefited just as much with all the tension gone from the locker rooms and the team chemistry at a much higher level.
