The Minnesota Timberwolves are struggling at the bottom of the league with just seven wins so far. They have the #1 NBA Draft on the roster, but to no avail. They are 1-9 in the last 10 games- a record that’s worse than those of teams like the Rockets and Cavaliers.

In a recent interview before Wolves’ game against the Bucks, the rookie sat for an interview where the interviewer asked him a simple question. To that, he funnily responded with a counter-question, “Where are you from, Jim? I like your accent. I wanna learn how to talk like that. But ask your question again, I was too much listening to your accent.”

The Wolves lost the game 112-139 in a game where the Bucks dominated, starting till the end. The young forward could record just 9 points as Karl-Anthony Towns and Malik Beasley shared 26-a-piece.

The young man recently converted a debatable Dunk of the Year on Raptors’ Yuta Watanabe. He is also averaging 14.3 points, 3.6 boards, 2.5 assists, and has started in more games than fellow rookie LaMelo Ball. Notably, Michael Jordan had a keen interest in him before the Wolves selected the teenager as the first pick. 

However, basketball was not the first love of this explosive and gifted athlete from the Georgia Bulldogs Men’s Basketball team. In fact, he took the NBA world by storm after claiming he wants to be a rapper. One must admit, he is definitely high on confidence and even higher on the humor scale.
