Ja Morant and Karl-Anthony Towns’ Fathers shared a moment
With the Timberwolves’ Game 1 victory all but secured, ESPN’s cameras caught a fun exchange between Tee Morant and Karl Towns Sr., who were both seated courtside opposite the benches of their sons’ teams.
The two dads, who have become courtside mainstays at their sons’ games, were spotted joking with one another ahead of Game 1 and throughout the game, leading to their exchange in the fourth quarter.
During a break in action, the elder Morant and Towns walked towards one another at halfcourt, where they exchanged a dap and hug with smiles on their faces.

According to USA Today’s Cydney Henderson, the All-Star dads have a running bet based on the outcome of the series: If the Grizzlies win the series, Karl Towns Sr. has to wear a Morant jersey. If the Timberwolves win, Tee Morant has to wear a Towns jersey.
