Of course Karl Towns signed up for sophomore online courses

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 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.

      You are a true skeptic. Some folks actually value education.

      Umm, that would be several millions that he will sign for, and he impresses me as someone who is a true student athlete. Some people like to learn new things. Intellectual curiosity is a good thing.

      You’re either a trolling Louisville fan, or you learned nothing about Karl Towns this season.

    That sound you hear off in the distance is Bobby knight’s head exploding.
