BBNBA: Karl Towns dominates “The Process”

To start the season, all everyone heard about was how Joel Embiid said he was the epitome of trusting the Philadelphia 76ers process. Our own Karl-Anthony Towns got a chance to take on Embiid last night, and showed everyone why they should be trusting the Timberwolves process rather than the dumpster fire of an organization that Philadelphia is.

Karl-Anthony Towns, Minnesota Timberwolves (110-86 win over 76ers)

KAT made his case for the #SCTop10 with this pump fake to get by Embiid, drive, and slam.

Towns went to work on Embiid all night, including this post move with some really nice foot work.

Let’s not forget, he’s a 7-footer who can stroke from downtown. I feel sorry for coaches who have to game plan around guarding him.

John Wall, Washington Wizards (119-112 win over Knicks)

We see drives like this from Wall on a nightly basis, but it is still extremely impressive how he handles the ball and finishes in the lane.

Wall’s passing ability impressed in college, setting the single game assist record for the Wildcats. But put him with an entire NBA roster around him, and that ability goes through the roof.

I really do find it incredible how well some of these big guys can handle the ball. Lyles is 6’10” and can do things like this.

And just to show he can work down low, here’s Lyles working the offensive glass.

bbnba-rondo

Rajon Rondo, Chicago Bulls (DNP

Rondo sat out last night, for a second straight game, due to an ankle injury.

And here’s tonight’s slate of NBA games:

    Towns is incredible and will do down as one go the greats. Feel bad for the guy in the picture though… Towns is just resting his junk on the back of his head. He should’ve known better than to be in towns path to the basket.
