Because he’s the perfect human being, Karl Towns plans to continue his education at the University of Kentucky while playing in the NBA.
Towns was back home over the weekend and he told NJ.com he has already signed up for online courses for his sophomore year at UK. He will balance the coursework and his rookie season in the league, wherever he ends up.
“With any organization I’m with, I’ll be taking them online,” Towns said. “Whether it’s one class, two classes, maybe three, it gets me a step closer to having that degree in my hand.”
Several former Wildcats have taken classes over the summer, but I don’t recall any of them continuing to be a student during their first season in the NBA.
Sometimes I wonder if Karl is real.
