Minneapolis. If you see a 7-foot tall man walking down the street downtown – it is probably Karl-Anthony Towns.

The Timberwolves' rookie sensation appeared on ESPN's "The Jump" and revealed that despite his huge frame he doesn't get recognized on the streets.

"No, no, no, I mean I've walked down downtown countless times, and I'm just a tall guy."

"Come on, Minnesota," commented NBA legend Tracy McGrady, although he admitted the previous night he had been mistaken in Cleveland for Houston Rocket Dwight Howard.

KAT did admit that things might be different if he wore this jacket while out and about.
