Russell said "we're like brothers" when describing the relationship between himself and Towns earlier in the week. "For like two months out in LA, we were working, we were training together, everything we were doing we were together, so for him to get the success that he's had, and for me to be the same way, it's a blessing," continued Russell, and it's nice to see the two highly touted rookies get to enjoy some more time together before going their separate ways for training camp.
