Timberwolves' first round pick Kris Dunn and rapper Desiigner recently linked up in Minneapolis for a Champs Sports Game City campaign.

The ad follows the pair through shooting hoops, bowling with kids at Bryant Lake Bowl in Uptown, and balling out at the Mall of America Champs store.

NBA rookie Dunn talks about how his hometown of New London, Connecticut differs from his new home in downtown Minneapolis. Dunn explains that the skyways are something he never even heard of until making his recent move to the Midwest.

He adds that although temps may begin to drastically drop, the people of Minnesota are far from cold. Dunn says he opted to commute to practice without headphones, because people are always saying nice things to him.

Desiigner teased the collaboration a few weeks back on Instagram when he posted a Mannequin Challenge at the same Champs location featured in the ad.
