Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns is known across the league as one of the NBA's most dominant big men, but he didn't see his name among the list of All-Stars representing the Western Conference.

Well, according to Towns, his snub was no surprise. The T-Wolves center sounded off on the league, claiming it didn't care to have the 24 best players in the All-Star Game.

"It's unfortunate that this year's All-Star Game won't have the 24 best players in the NBA," said Towns.

Towns claims to have been disrespected since he entered the league out of Kentucky in 2015, and is now desensitized to it.

Realistically, however, disrespect is likely not the cause for Towns' absence in the 2020 All-Star Game. The T-Wolves star missed 17 games to injury this season and has watched the team's hot start fizzle into a 15-33 record.

Despite averaging a career-high 27.0 points alongside 10.8 rebounds and 3.3 3's per game, Towns won't be taking the floor with the other NBA All-Stars in Chicago. Instead, he'll get the weekend off for the first time in three years.
