Timberwolves’ Karl-Anthony Towns Clarifies ‘Dynasty’ Comment

minnesota timberwolves

It’s been a long time since there was anything to feel good about when it pertained to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

But with recent draft successes, trades and free agency the Wolves are ready to make a playoff push in the 2016-2017 season.

Minnesota’s Karl-Anthony Towns made some headlines with some comments he made after the acquisitions of Jimmy Butler and Jeff Teague.

“This is what dynasties are made of” Towns told ESPN’s Tim MacMahon back in June.

Towns has since clarified those comments, which came with a bit of comedic backlash on social media platforms such as Twitter.

“I think it is way too early for that,” Towns told Sean Deveney of The Sporting News.

“The Golden State Warriors, that is a dynasty. What the Spurs have had is a dynasty. Cleveland, because they’ve gone to the Finals and won a championship. It’s a goal we should set for ourselves, but I think it is too soon.”

With all the great moves that the Timberwolves have made the excitement is understandable.

“For me, what everyone needs to know is that we’ve made great moves,” Towns said.

“We made great moves to make ourselves better. I have been very fortunate to be with such a great franchise and the organization is going to do so well from here on out.”

“I think we are building a team that has a great sense of what it wants to be, and also adding players who ooze greatness and ooze winning, it’s just something that is contagious.”
