Karl-Anthony Towns Named 2015-16 NBA Rookie of the Year

To no one's surprise, Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns was announced as the winner of the 2015-16 NBA Rookie of the Year award. 

Towns, the No. 1 overall pick from Kentucky, received all 130 votes, making him the fifth unanimous choice for the Rookie of the Year award since Ralph Sampson in in 1984. Other unanimous ROY winners include Damian Lillard and Blake Griffin. 

Towns winning the award also makes it back-to-back ROY award winners for the Timberwolves, as Andrew Wiggins won the award last season. 

Towns had one heck of a season, averaging 18.5 points and 10.5 rebounds per game, along with 1.7 blocks. It makes it the best rookie big man season since Tim Duncan's. 

New York Knicks big man Kristaps Porzingis finished second in the voting, followed by Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets. 

It's a great start to Towns' career, and he looks to be an All-Star and top-tier big man for years to come.
