Towns on Warriors' title window: 'If I have anything to say about it...'

Karl-Anthony Towns is already one of the best big men in the NBA.

And he has lofty career goals.

How many more championships does he think the Warriors are going to win?

"I don't know. If I have anything to say about it, hopefully not many," Towns told The B/R Mag Show podcast.

After averaging 18.3 points and 10.5 rebounds per game in 2015-16, Towns was named Rookie of the Year.

He followed it up by registering 25.1 points, 12.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists this past season, while shooting just under 37 percent from beyond the arc.

Clippers center DeAndre Jordan narrowly edged out Towns for the spot on the All-NBA Third Team.

Some members of the media predicted Minnesota would make the playoffs in 2017, but the 'Wolves disappointed and finished with a 31-51 record.

One of the 31 wins -- a 103-102 victory over the Warriors on March 10, in which Towns racked up 23 points and nine rebounds.

The Warriors are the overwhelming favorites to win the championship again in 2017-18...

Draymond Green knocked out of game with 'a midsection issue'


Draymond Green knocked out of game with 'a midsection issue'

Already down three All-Stars, the Warriors lost their fourth midway through the first half on Monday night.

With just over nine minutes remaining in the second quarter against the Spurs, Draymond Green took a knee from a driving Danny Green.

Draymond was in immediate pain and left the court for the locker room.

Just before the end of the first half, NBC Sports Bay Area's Kerith Burke reported that Green was ruled out for the rest of the game with a "midsection issue."

The Warriors are currently playing without Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant. All three are dealing with injuries that will keep them out several games.

What if they don't win the title? Joe Lacob says Warriors 'looking at different options'


What if they don't win the title? Joe Lacob says Warriors 'looking at different options'

The Warriors were the No. 1 overall seed in the playoffs in 2015, 2016 and 2017.

That is probably going to change this season, as they trail the Rockets by three games (although it's really four because Houston has the tiebreaker) with 12 games to play (and only lead the Raptors by one game).

What does owner Joe Lacob think about his team right now?

“We’ve had our best team we’ve ever had this year,” Lacob recently told Mark Medina of the Bay Area News Group (read the full story here). “We have to go prove it on the court, but we have enough to win it.

"It doesn’t mean we will, but we are certainly set up to have the opportunity potentially to do that. That’s about all you can ask.”

Things can change in an instant and Lacob understands that.

That's why he's constantly discussing scenarios with Warriors GM Bob Myers and the rest of Golden State's decision-makers.

“We’ll build around that core until we decide maybe we shouldn’t," Lacob told BANG. "But right now it feels pretty good. These guys are all performing at a great level. We love them as part of our organization.

"I don’t really see doing anything major. But you never really know. We have to evaluate when the season is over. It’s very hard when you’re in the middle of it all to see it objectively.”

What happens if the Warriors don't win the championship this year?

We will leave you with this quote Lacob gave BANG.

“Maybe we will emphasize continuity. Or maybe we will make a big move. We’re looking at different options, given different things playing out in different ways.

"I think you should always be doing that.”
