Wolves rookie Karl-Anthony Towns dons a new look for Game 6


Minnesota Timberwolves rookie superstar Karl-Anthony Towns was at Thursday night's Game 6 of the NBA Finals in Cleveland, and he was sporting a new look.

Towns, the league's unanimous Rookie of the Year, appeared on NBA TV's pre-game coverage of Game 6, minus his trademark beard.


Here's a look from a different angle.


It's a big change for Towns, who just a couple of weeks ago was still sporting the beard when he appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

He averaged 18.3 points and 10.5 rebounds per game for the Timberwolves this season. While the Wolves missed out on the playoffs once again this year, Minnesota is already starting to hear some buzz about 2016-17.

If he wasn't helping the Wolves improve so much on the floor he might have a career in broadcasting. His appearance on the pre-game show is already drawing rave reviews.
