Karl-Anthony Towns Sr., the father of the reigning NBA Rookie of the Year, is considering his legal options after an incident during a January home game inflicted a serious leg injury, according to Sports Illustrated’s Michael McCann.
Those options include potentially suing the Minnesota Timberwolves for negligence.
During a timeout in the second quarter of the T’Wolves’ Jan. 26 loss to the Indiana Pacers, the Minnesota mascot lost control at the end of a sledding stunt down a flight of stairs. The mascot, named Crunch, crashed into an empty row of chairs, and those chairs hit the 54-year-old Towns, Sr.’s right knee.
The stunt is frequently performed at the Target Center and has been performed by the Utah Jazz mascot, as well.
