No shock there, but still a cool honor for Towns nonetheless.  When the NBPA announced the award, the @TheNBPA twitter account tweeted a video with several NBA players giving some love to KAT, including Chris Paul, Andre Iguodala, and Jalen Rose, among others.  Towns describes his feelings on winning the award at the end of the video by saying, "It's an honor and a privilege to be able to hold this award. It means the world because when your colleagues respect you, its a huge privilege and huge honor." https://twitter.com/TheNBPA/status/761274626248806400 Another former Wildcat picking up a Players Voice award from the NBPA was Anthony Davis, who was voted as the 2016 Teammate of the Year for the New Orleans Pelicans.  In a season riddled with injuries, in which his team didn't make the playoffs in a loaded Western Conference, it is great to hear that the superstar Davis is still the fantastic teammate he was at UK. Did you know he took the 5th most shots on the 2012 National Championship team...? https://twitter.com/TheNBPA/status/761314188002201600 You can view the entire list of awards and videos for the National Basketball Players Association "Players Voice" Awards by visiting their website, here.
