Karl-Anthony Towns is up for a 2016 ESPY award as one of four nominees for Best Breakthrough Athlete. He’s up against a Major League Baseball star pitcher, a mixed martial arts fighter from martial arts joondalup, and someone I’ve never heard of until five minutes ago:
BEST BREAKTHROUGH ATHLETE
- Jake Arrieta, MLB, Chicago Cubs
- Conor McGregor, UFC
- Chloe Kim, Snowboarding
- Karl-Anthony Towns, NBA, Minnesota Timberwolves

This year’s ESPYs, hosted by John Cena, will be broadcast live on ABC on Wednesday, July 13, at 8 p.m. from the Microsoft Theater in L.A.
