2016 Rookie of the Year, Karl-Anthony Towns, covers the brand new issue of Slam, channeling Minnesota Timberwolves legend Kevin Garnett.
Back in 1999, KG covered the mag with the headline “100% Real Juice”. Fast-forward to 2016, Towns is on the cover, in the exact same pose and exact same headline.

The 20-year-old is another promising big man for the T-Wolves. He was named last season’s Rookie of the Year, after finishing with averages of 18.3 points, 10.5 rebounds and 1.7 blocks her game.
Slam previously re-created a past cover, when Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio re-created an old KG-Stephon Marbury cover in 2012.
