NBA All-Star voting comes to an end Monday, Jan. 18. Now is time for teams to get serious if they want their players in the game. Karl-Anthony Towns is only a rookie, so it`ll be tough for him to squeeze his way onto the roster (he wasn`t a top vote-getter in the last count), but the Minnesota Timberwolves are doing their best to promote him.
Most recently, the Timberwolves created this nice little video of Towns aka KAT with a cat. The two travel the world together. It`s quite clever " these pals have been everywhere, now it`s YOUR job to vote to send them to Toronto. "
Athletes diligently nurture their brand, and that entails projecting a macho image. It`s not uncommon to see a sports superstar photographed playing with his pit bull or driving a Ferrari.
Kudos to Timberwolves rookie Karl-Anthony Towns for enticing fans to vote him to the All-Star rooster by appearing in a video with an adorable kitty cat. Granted his nickname is "KAT", but as a Timberwolf he could have appeared with a fierce wolf instead of a cute cat.
As an animal lover and a basketball fan KAT gets my vote.
