Day two of Wolves' training camp media availability started with Karl-Anthony Towns talking about his body, bringing everyone back to simpler #MuscleWatch times.

“I joked all summer I just wanted to be a GI Joe,” said KAT.

In years past, Towns was focused on building muscle mass and weight instead of being lean. Towns received advice from Detriot Piston, Ben Wallace—the first NBA player from the draft era to enter the Hall of Fame after going undrafted—and has been doing workouts all summer trying to mirror his approach. Towns has been working to get lean, ultimately striving for a new body type that could take him to the next level.
