Karl-Anthony Towns responded to Cleveland’s Game 7 victory over Golden State Sunday night by promising that he "won't stop" until he has multiple NBA championships.
The Timberwolves Rookie of the Year first tweeted “I need that feeling” before realizing he had more to share:

I won't stop till I get that feeling.....multiple times #promise— Karl-Anthony Towns (@KarlTowns) June 20, 2016

The Wolves are in the rebuilding process with Towns and former Rookie of the Year Andrew Wiggins leading the charge. New coach Tom Thibodeau and general manager Scott Layden were hired in April to help mold the team’s young talent and piece together a championship team.
Vegas has the 2016-2017 NBA title opening odds at 70/1 for the Wolves. Ten 10 other teams have better odds, led by Golden State’s 2/1 and Cleveland’s 3/1 chances.
The Wolves won 29 games last season, 13 better than 2014-2015, and have the No. 5 overall pick in this week’s NBA draft. They could also trade their first-round draft pick to secure more veteran talent to support Towns and his big promise.
