Watch: KAT is a big fan of old-school video games

Streets of Rage and NBA Jam!

Karl-Anthony Towns just wrapped up his sophomore season with the Timberwolves. Although Minnesota will miss the playoffs again, Towns put up video game numbers over his last 46 games.

So it only makes sense that the up-and-coming superstar is a video game freak. After all he's only 21 years old, so he's basically still a kid.

He recently teamed up with Draftkings where they followed Towns around a video game store in New York. Towns busted out classic games like NBA Jam and Streets of Rage.

He even admitted that playing video games was one of his favorite things to do with his mom when he was a kid. If you're a fan of the classics, check out the video below for a trip down memory lane.
