Rudy Gobert and Karl-Anthony Towns’ photo goes viral

The Minnesota Timberwolves pulled off one of the biggest moves of the summer when they landed All-Star Rudy Gobert in a blockbuster deal with the Utah Jazz.

They now have a starting lineup with four stars; D’Angelo Russell, Karl-Anthony Towns, Anthony Edwards and Gobert.

Russell was named All-Star in 2019, Towns and Gobert each made their third trip to the All-Star Game last season, and Edwards will likely be All-Star soon.

The Timberwolves recently posted a photo of new teammates Gobert and Towns, which went viral on Twitter.

Both players appear to be in fine form ahead of the new season.

Last season, Towns averaged 24.6 points and 9.8 rebounds per game, while Gobert averaged 15.6 points, 14.7 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per game.

They are arguably the best frontline duo in the entire NBA.

Last season, the Timberwolves went 46-36 and beat the Los Angeles Clippers in the qualifying tournament.

Therefore, they made the NBA playoffs for the first time since the 2018 season when they had Jimmy Butler on the roster.

They lost in the first round to Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies in six games, but there’s evidence they could have won this series.

Adding Gobert to the fold makes him a contender in the Western Conference.

The Timberwolves were an average rebounding team last year (14th in the NBA with 52.2 RPG).

With Gobert, they could quickly find themselves in the top 5 next season.

On October 19, they will play their first game of the 2022-23 NBA regular season when they host the Oklahoma City Thunder at Target Center.
