The value of Karl-Anthony Towns to the Minnesota Timberwolves might shine brightest this season when he is off the floor. With KAT not playing on the one-year anniversary of his mother’s passing, the Timberwolves failed to compete in his absence. On today’s pod, amongst other things, we dive into the Timberwolves staggeringly poor numbers with KAT off the floor this season.

  • Looking at the numbers of the Wolves other best players with KAT on the floor compared to their numbers with KAT off the floor — and why they find success next to KAT
  • The emergence of the KAT and Naz Reid pairing under Chris Finch after the two rarely shared the floor under Ryan Saunders
  • Josh Okogie speaks on the weight he is feeling after another death to a black man in the greater Minneapolis community (audio from Okogie included)
