For the July 2016 issue of Sports Illustrated Kids, we found out how the 2016 NBA Rookie of the Year spent his summers as a kid.

July 13, 2016

July is Sports Illustrated Kids’ annual Summer Camp issue. And this year, your counselor at Camp Wannawin is none other than 2016 NBA Rookie of the Year Karl-Anthony Towns. He’s hanging out tent side on the cover of the magazine, and inside he offers tips on how to post up a defender, deal with bad calls, and make the perfect S’more. Needless to say, we got to know Karl-Anthony pretty well. 

But while spending time with him at the photo shoot, we had to find out how he spent his summers as a kid. Did he go to camp? What were his favorite activities? And what does he do in the summers now, as a rising basketball superstar? Check out the video above for the answers — and then pick up a copy of the July issue of SI Kids!
