Karl Towns and Devin Booker may have earned adjoining places in the hearts of the BBN forever during the 2014-15 season, but Karl-Anthony Towns has to side with his new teammate after last night’s altercation during the Timberwolves-Suns game.
“I love Devin like a brother … but I got Gorgui,” Towns said in a postgame interview after Minnesota’s win.
In case you haven’t seen it yet (is there anyone who hasn’t seen it by now?), check out the video of ex-Cat Devin Booker versus ex-Card Gorgui Dieng.

So word I’m getting is that after the ejections Dieng fought off two security guards and got within about 15 yards of the Suns locker room before security was able to restrain him. Booker was not in the locker room or anywhere near as he was held up by security outside the tunnel

After the game, Dieng joked he “just wanted to exchange jerseys with [Booker], nothing else.”
And while Kentucky fans are all, of course, #TeamBooker, Dieng’s slight size advantage is worth noting: Dieng is listed at 6-foot-11, 252 pounds; Booker is listed at 6-foot-6, 210 pounds.
Whatever – I’ll still take Booker all day. Cats by 90.
