Towns credited his faith and wrote that “life has taught” him since he was young that if one dwells on the past “you will never give yourself a chance to live in the present and love life.”

The piece noted, that KAT lost his mom last year to the coronavirus. The NBA superstar then said his girlfriend, Jordyn Woods, had been there for him through it all.

“My woman has held me down more than the world knows,” Towns wrote. “From my mother and family members dying (1 on her bday in Cabo), getting hit by a drunk driver (was 2pm in the afternoon FYI) in LA this off-season and staying with me in the hospital for the night and helping me in rehab.”

He also praised Woods for helping him get through COVID-19 after he tested positive earlier this month.
