Seth Greenberg says Karl Towns could be one of the best players in the history of the game


KSR guest host Seth Greenberg is talking all things draft over on the Worldwide Leader this week and didn’t skimp on the praise when it comes to Karl Towns. Greenberg raved about Towns, going as far to say he could be one the best to ever play the game.

“Karl-Anthony Towns is a guy, with his versatility, that is going to be a 15-year All-Star. He’s going to be one of the best players, maybe, in the history of the game,” Greenberg said. “His skill level, the things he can do with the basketball, it’s mind-boggling.”

Greenberg compared Towns to five-time NBA Champion Tim Duncan, but with better range and athleticism. He also bragged about Karl’s intangibles, because at this rate, who isn’t?

“He’s a really interesting young person. Nineteen years old,” Greenberg said. “He has the maturity and the confidence rarely seen, but not an arrogance. He’s very comfortable in his own skin, and he’s just a wonderful young person. High character, great work ethic, terrific family.”

It is very rare that I can say this about someone, but Karl Towns deserves everything that’s coming his way.

    Don’t get me wrong Karl is a great player and it was a blessing to have him at UK for a year but golly are people over-hyping this kid. He still has a lot to learn and a lot of developing to do to become a great player.

    Karl showed some amazing passing skills in high school all star games that you didn’t get too see much of at UK. As far as his integrity,I stayed for the radio shows after the games and when he came out to be interviewed they would literally have to drag him off court because he would not stop signing autographs for kids. He really seemed like one of the nicest and most respectful kids we ever had. Noel was the same way and they both deserve to have long successful careers. Most all of our players are so nice and respectful when you see them off Court.
