Quote:
The No. 1 overall pick from Kentucky posted the best rookie season by a big man since Tim Duncan. He averaged 18.1 points, 10.7 rebounds and 1.7 blocks and helped the Timberwolves win 13 more games than they did the previous season. Towns played all 82 games and was named Western Conference rookie of the month in all six months the award was handed out.

From the night of the NBA draft all the way to the end of his first season, Towns stood head and shoulders above the rest of his rookie class.

Towns turned 20 early in the season but showed the polish and poise of a veteran from the very early stages. His ability to pass, rebound, block shots and score from the paint and 3-point line make him the quintessential big man for the modern era and give the Timberwolves hope that they have finally found the star players needed to carry them out of the abyss.

"He's going to be a Hall of Famer in this league," Oklahoma City star Kevin Durant said.
