Karl Anthony-Towns credits personal success to Al Horford's mentorship
Karl-Anthony Towns is starting to run away with the Rookie of the Year race, but he didn't get to this point on this own. No, Towns has plenty of people to thank, and in a recent video put together as a part of MENTOR's #MentorIRL campaign, he named one of them: Al Horford.
Towns says he never would've gotten to the NBA had it not been for Horford, who played with him on the Dominican Republic National Team.
The Timberwolves have already played the Hawks twice this year. Horford and Towns matched up for much of those games. The rookie averaged 11.5 points and 9.0 rebounds for those couple of contests.
