Towns Is The Cover Athlete For The My NBA 2K17 Mobile App
Karl-Anthony Towns is 20 years old.
He's already done a lot. Like being named Rookie of the Year and winning the Skills Competition at the All-Star Game in Toronto.
His resume is now a line longer.
Towns announced via Twitter on Wednesday morning that he will be the cover athlete for the My NBA 2K17 mobile app.

This shouldn’t really be a surprise considering how great his rookie season was and how marketable Towns is off the court.
It was announced earlier this summer that Towns had joined Team 2K, along with the likes of Kyrie Irving, Jimmy Butler, Kevin Durant, Andre Drummond, Draymond Green and this year’s cover athlete, Paul George.
Not bad company.

We have a feeling this won’t be the last brand we’ll see highlighting the person Towns is on and off the court. Maybe the cover of NBA 2K18?
