He was 3rd Team All NBA last year. That makes him one of the 15 best players and it is hard to argue his inclusion was a fluke (like say IT4's 2nd Team was) since he has gotten better each season. The Wolves were 13.5 points per 100 possessions with him on the floor then when he was off the floor (his +- with him on the floor was 6.2). That is pretty much the definition of making your team better.
You guys are crazy. Towns is one of the 15 best players on the world 3 years into his career. He is one of the best offensive players in all of basketball. His shooting is incredible. He is an excellent rebounder and credible passer. His defense needs work but he has the skill level to be at least passable if not better (and I do think the fact he plays with so many poor defenders makes him seem worse than he actually is). Jaylen Brown if everything goes right will be lucky to be as good as Towns is right now.Disagree with that, but you don't seem to like Brown. Towns is an elite talent offensively and won the Skills competition a few years ago, but he hasn't made Minny much better. Why? Yes, if you are top-15 then you make any team better.
And yet, with Jimmy Butler for 59 games (roughly the same as Kyrie, except he played in the playoffs), Wiggins, Teague, Dieng, Taj Gibson and Jamal Crawford, they won 8 less games than the C's and Towns offense deteriorated in the playoffs. Capela neutralized him, and Houston had little trouble taking them out.
On the other hand, despite a difficult injury, Jaylen stepped up considerably in the playoffs and found a way to be the best player on the floor in several games. There was no comparison between the two teams in terms of competitiveness and performance.
