Karl-Anthony Towns was a fan favorite during his time at Kentucky. And while he's quickly becoming one of the young stars in the NBA, he's also still shining off of the court.
KAT recorded quite the statistic in last night's Timberwolves' win: 27 points and 27 rebounds. And after the game, instead of celebrating his big night, Towns spent some time with one of his biggest fans - Isaac, who is currently battling Leukemia. He gave Isaac several signed jerseys as well as a custom pair of shoes. Towns also says he's having his friend, Anthony Davis, send Isaac his signed jersey from the game, and he's reached out to Coach Calipari about getting him some Kentucky jerseys.
Here's the heartwarming video:
What a transformation. Towns isn't the only former Cat making some community-based contributions. Read up on Devin Booker's 2.5 million-dollar pledge here.
