At the end of his post, Towns said, "I know what I must do. I'll take it from here."

Towns is the reigning Rookie of the Year and with just one season under his belt, he's already considered one of the best players in the league.

On Saturday morning, head coach Tom Thibodeau also released a statement congratulating Garnett on his storied career.
