Karl-Anthony Towns Called Out For Ja Morant Dirty Plays (Video)

The Minnesota Timberwolves’ first-round series versus the Memphis Grizzlies has been one of the most entertaining ones of the playoffs thus far.

That said – it’s has also featured its fair share of controversy.

Case in point: recent accusations that Wolves big man Karl-Anthony Towns attempted a number of dirty plays in an effort to injure Grizzlies guard Ja Morant.

The videos largely speak for themselves:

Reactions poured in immediately:

Though some people did come to Towns’ defense:

Obviously everyone can decide for themselves whether Towns was playing dirty or not. But given that the NBA literally let one player break another’s wrist without doing much about it, it’s unlikely that league officials will step in to intervene.

Towns is something of a polarizing player. Everyone from Kevin Durant to Draymond Green has taken shots at him over the years. This is unlikely to help raise his stock in the eyes of his peers. Especially since the target of his allegedly dirty play is one of the NBA’s fastest rising young stars, who recently achieved new levels of fan adoration when he took a girl off Drake.

The next few games of this Wolves vs Grizzlies series will be telling. If Towns pulls something similar again – folks will take notice.

If this was a one-off, it will likely just be forgotten.
