(Karl-Anthony Towns:) The personal impact KG has had on me is life-changing. He’s been the most important piece to my career in the NBA and one of the best friendships I have in my life. So I’m always blessed to say that he’s my brother. We bonded so well because of how passionate and emotional we both are.
My favorite memory of Kevin Garnett is not a memory—it’s more of the experience I had with him for a year, just enjoying that moment of being his teammate, conversing with him every single day, learning from him every single day. There’s no price that you can pay, no money that can buy you the experience that I’ve been gifted with my first year in the NBA.
