Karl Towns is well on his way to becoming a fan favorite and he won’t arrive on campus for more than a year. Towns roomed with the notorious W.I.G. (Andrew Wiggins) at last week’s Hoop Summit, and told reporters that he didn’t talk to “Wiggy” about coming to UK and chose to give him some space instead. As a result, the two became close friends, and Towns proved he has ten times more willpower than the common Kentucky fan.
Towns turned some heads on his own during the all-star festivities, giving fans a small taste of what’s to come in 2014. The 7′ manchild did an interview with KSTV in which he was asked what he wants his legacy at UK to be. His response? “I want to be the greatest Wildcat who ever lived.”
I love that this kid’s dreams are as big as he is.
