Watch Karl Towns dunk it off the shot clock

Karl Towns is currently training with the Dominican Republic National Team, but it’s not all hard work. Towns and teammate Luis Montero took a break from a recent practice to have a friendly dunk contest. Check out the video above to see Towns dunk it off the shot clock.

    I would be more surprised if there was a 7 footer that couldn’t do that. It’s not really that impressive.

    Wish balls weren’t bouncing around at his feet when he’s doing stuff like that. Geez. That’s a good way to break an ankle, blow out a knee, etc.

    I doubt Dirk Nowitzki would look all that impressive trying to dunk like this. I hope Towns can learn to play the game like Dirk. If he found his way to the Mavs (or another team if Dirk decides to leave) some day that would be perfect. That would be an interesting article someone for KSR could write… The perfect mentor for each Cat. I will take a shot at it… This list doesn’t mean I think they will be that good, just a guy that they are somewhat similar to that they should try to emulate.

    Towns = Dirk
    Randle = Lebron/Blake Griffin (I think he can be as good or better than Blake… Obviously he is not going to touch Lebron, but he has Bron’s size and is about as close to him athletically as humans get)
    Andrew HArrison= Chauncey Billups
    Aaron Harrison = Arron Afflalo (Sp?)
    James Young = James Harden
    Willie= Tyson Chandler
    Dakari= Andrew Bynum
    Nerlens= Larry Sanders
    Poythress= Kawhi Leonard
    Archie= Andre Iguodala/ Jamal Crawford
    Anthony Davis= KG
    MKG = Scottie Pippen/Gerald Wallace
    Terrence Jones= Paul Millsap
    Boogie= Marc Gasol
    J Wall= Gary Payton
    Brandon Knight= Jason Terry
    Doron Lamb=JJ Redick
    Darius Miller= Bruce Bowen
    Brian Long= Matt Heisenbuttel
    Brad Calipari= Michael Jordan
