Stephen Curry isn’t the only unanimously heralded player in the NBA as today it has been revealed that the Minnesota Timberwolves rookie Karl-Anthony Towns has been named the 2015-2016 NBA Rookie Of The Year. The 20-year-old snagged the award after earning all 130 of the first place votes. The achievement also has more significance considering that the Timberwolves also had the ROTY last season as well with Towns’ teammate Andrew Wiggins, the first time a franchise has had back to back recipients since 1974.
Being selected with the no.1 overall pick in last year’s draft, Towns averaged 18 points, nearly 11 rebounds and two assists per game throughout the season. New York Knicks rookie Kristaps Porzingis finished second in the voting, followed by Nikola Jokic, Devin Booker and the 76ers Jahlil Okafor.
