In his nine years, Towns has dealt with his share of losing, his share of criticism that he couldn’t be a winning player, and here he was contributing in a major way to perhaps the biggest victory in franchise history.

“I definitely had a moment,” said Towns, who soaked in the adoration of hundreds of Wolves fans who stayed to celebrate near the team bench after. “I’ve been here nine years, talked about wanting to win and do something special here for the organization. All of the failures and all the things that materialized and happened, the disappointment that comes with it led to this moment.”

And in finding their collective retribution, this keeps Edwards and Minnesota alive for an unlikely title, and assures that for the sixth consecutive year a different team will hoist the Larry (O’Brien Trophy) in championsip celebration, a track record not since since the end of the 1970s, when teams competed for a different piece of hardware that at the time was awarded by the actual O’Brien.

I still don’t believe I saw it.  But I can’t wait to see what’s next.

Courage…
