Karl-Anthony Towns is one of the most talented big men in the league, and many people love his ability to shoot from the center position. Despite his talent, the Minnesota Timberwolves have struggled as a franchise during his time there, only making the playoffs once during the 2017-18 season.
It seems as though Karl-Anthony Towns is done with continuously losing. After the Timberwolves' recent game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Towns was very frustrated and expressed his anger at the consistent losing he's had to face. However, he did admit that he had to "play better".
I just gotta play better... It's pretty simple as that. I’ve lost for a long time here and I’m not trying to fucking lose anymore. It’s pretty simple as that. Food don’t taste good, life don’t feel the same.
Just disappointed in me. Just tired of coming up here, and saying a bunch of stuff... It never translates to the next game.
The Minnesota Timberwolves are currently below .500 with an 11-15 record. There's no doubt that this is unfortunate, as they have some solid players on their team next to Towns in D'Angelo Russell and Anthony Edwards. Hopefully, they are able to turn things around soon. Consistent losing is certainly frustrating, especially if you're a franchise star like Karl-Anthony Towns.
Karl-Anthony Towns has previously stated that he wants to win championships like other great big men. However, the Timberwolves need to make the playoffs before the team as a whole starts thinking about being a championship contender. A competitive team isn't built in a day or even a season. With that being said, they have a decent enough core as of right now, and perhaps we'll see them make it to the postseason this year, whether it be via a top-6 seed or the play-in tournament.
