BBNBA: Karl Towns records career double-double number 100

Basically everyone knew that Karl Towns was going to be a star in the NBA once they saw his abilities at the University of Kentucky. However, I for one, wasn’t sure he’d be an immediate superstar just a year and a half into his career. Towns has legitimately already become one of the top 5 big men in the league, if not higher than that. And to think, he’s still so young, only 21 years old. Incredibly bright future for KAT in Minnesota. Congrats to Karl for recording his 100th career double-double in last night’s win over the Los Angeles Clippers. He’s the second-youngest player in history to reach this milestone, behind only Dwight Howard.

If Boogie is going to give you anything, it is going to be hustle in the paint.

Davis checked out of this one early with a wrist injury. Initial x-rays were negative but more to come in the next few days.

      P.S. Put him on the same team with John Wall and you would have the most underwhelming team ever.

    I’ve been watching Skal and the Kings. To me, he looks like he’s gained about 30-50 lbs, and he normally plays with so much more confidence now- Way more than he ever did at UK. Happy for him that he’s getting his shot.
