Karl-Anthony Towns Stops By "Gamer's Guide to Pretty Much Everything"


NBA center Karl-Anthony Towns has had an eventful 12 months. He was drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves, then named 2016 Rookie of the Year, he’s on the cover of the July issue of Sports Illustrated Kids (pick up your copy today!), and now he’s got an acting role.

On Monday, July 18, Towns stops by the Disney XD show Gamer’s Guide to Pretty Much Everything. Here’s Disney’s description of the episode, titled “The Ringer”: Conor and Ashley recruit NBA Rookie-of-the-Year Karl-Anthony Towns to be their ringer for a charity basketball game, and Wendell attempts to boost the popularity of his "Rekt" videos.

And here’s a clip!

To really sell Towns as a ringer, Conor and Ashley also get him to wear a disguise. And if this photo is any indication, they went all out:


​Catch Towns (and his old-man alter-ego) in action when his episode of Gamer’s Guide to Pretty Much Everything airs on Disney XD Monday, July 18, at 12 p.m. EDT.
