Karl-Anthony Towns denies liking #FreeKat Tweet


Minnesota Timberwolves fans had a nerve-wracking moment after reports surfaced that Karl-Anthony Towns allegedly liked a Tweet that says #FreeKAT. In the era of star players forcing their way out of their teams, should TWolves fans worry about the latest incident?

#FreeKAT on Twitter

Opinions can get honestly brutal on Twitter because the chances of getting viral are high, but things can also get fabricated and falsified pretty fast. Fans were quick to notice that Towns liked a Tweet that says #FreeKAT, and it raised the alarm in Minnesota.


Many had a reason to believe it was legit because the NBA player liked the Tweet using his own verified account. In the era of superstars forcing their way out of teams in a very public manner, KAT wanting out of his city may not be too farfetched of an idea.

The team lost to the New Orleans Pelicans without its star Zion Williamson, prompting young guard Anthony Edwards to call out his teammates. It's good that Edwards has asserted leadership in the team. But it also speaks how Towns may have lost his spot among the respected voices in the locker room. 

KAT denies liking the Tweet

Towns explained he was hacked and was asleep when the incident happened. While there's no way of knowing if what he was claiming was true, KAT tweeted that he changed his password after the incident. 

The 7-year veteran was picked first in the 2015 NBA Draft, and a lot of expectations came with it. So far, the Wolves only made the postseason once with KAT, and it's brought frustrations to the fans, management, and the players. The 6'11" center denied there's anything going on that should worry the fans, at least for now. We all know what losing does to players - it can quickly change their minds. 

Sitting at the 10th spot in the stacked Western Conference early in the season, things are not looking good for Minnesota. They have lost three games in a row, and some locker room issues need to be addressed. 

Fans should not worry for now, but if the team fails to enter the playoffs yet again, we shouldn't be surprised by anything.
