The 2018 NBA All-Star Game is a couple of hours away. This year's game features some notable first-time All-Stars.

One of those first-time All-Stars is Karl-Anthony Towns. The former No. 1 overall pick by the Minnesota Timberwolves was voted in as a Western Conference reserve.

Towns, who starred collegiately at Kentucky, will be playing for Team Steph. (Stephen Curry drafted Towns in the first-ever NBA All-Star draft; they'll be playing Team LeBron.)

The 22-year-old big man is having a career year. He's averaging 20 points, 12 rebounds and 1.5 blocks a game while helping lead Minnesota into NBA Playoffs contention.

Towns is doing pretty well off of the court, too. He's been dating Kawahine Andrade, an Instagram mode.

The couple actually started dating when Towns commented on her posts. He called her "one of the hottest fitness models in the world."

Then, he slid into her DMs. The rest is history.

The NBA All-Star Game is set to tip off at 8 p.m. E.T. It'll be televised on TNT.
