The Minnesota Timberwolves hype train is in full flow. With the two previous Rookie of the Year winners along with a plethora of young talent, experience in the right places and the addition of new head coach Tom Thibodeau, people are expecting big things from the organisation.

2015-16 was a tough campaign for the young team as their progress was put on hold by the death of then-head coach Flip Saunders, but now is the time for them to show their full potential.

There were signs last season that the Timberwolves could develop into a championship-calibre team in the future and much of the excitement stems from unanimous Rookie of the Year winner Karl-Anthony Towns.


Coming out of the University of Kentucky, Towns quickly adapted to the NBA and has evidently been working on his game as he heads into his sophomore season.

If you needed any more proof that Towns is legit, then you only need to watch the below video.

In just three clips, the center - don't forget that - produced a step-back jump shot Stephen Curry would be proud of, provided a no-look pass to Shabazz Muhammad and arrived from the three-point line to throw down a vicious putback slam dunk.

The highlights came from the T-Wolves' final preseason game; a 109-74 win over the Charlotte Hornets, where Towns finished with 15 points, nine rebounds and two assists.
