Karl Towns says he doesn’t know if he’ll ever get over the loss


Tonight is the night we will probably find out Karl Towns’ fate. At 8:30 p.m., the ping pong balls at the NBA Draft Lottery will tell us which team gets the #1 pick, and, most likely, Karl.

In a lengthy interview with The New York Post’s Steve Serby, Towns talked about what it would mean to play for the New York Knicks, his hometown team. A lot of the interview is typical, wonderful Karl saying typical, wonderful Karl things about the Knicks, which anyone with two eyes can see is his ideal destination; however, Serby asked a few questions about Kentucky, and, of course, the painful end to the season.

Q: Describe what you referred to as “the pain of 38-1.”

A: It’s hard to be so perfect, but yet so faulty. And, that’s what we were. We just … we couldn’t finish it out. We couldn’t be perfect, absolutely perfect with no fault. It hurts a lot to know how close we were to perfection, how far we really were. It hurts a lot to think that with everything we felt was going right, it wasn’t even about being perfect, it was more about winning a championship and the fact that we were not able to capitalize on that, for me personally, it will haunt me for the rest of my life.

Q: It sounds like you’re still not over it.

A: I won’t be over it for a very, very long time. I don’t think I’ll ever be over it.

A trip to Mexico helped, but same, Karl. Same.

Check out the rest of the interview for more typical, wonderful Karl.

    NO ONE in the BBN should EVER get over the loss in this year’s final 4. It will ALWAYS haunt us – particulary since Duke won it all…

      At least it’s NOT as BAD as being 1-7 vs your RIVAL, and getting KNOCKED OUT of the NCAA tournament TWICE by them – particularly since Louisville “has the better coach”…
