Durant Thinks Karl Towns will be a Hall of Famer

When meeting with the media before the Thunder take on the Timberwolves tonight, KD gave Karl-Anthony Towns a compliment.  Praise from opponents isn’t uncommon, but this kind of compliment is rarer than Mr. Clean with hair.

“He’s going to be a Hall of Famer in this league.”

That isn’t a Rick Pitino hyperbole.  That’s coming from the 2014 NBA MVP, a Naismith Player of the Year and six-time All-Star selection.  The Rookie has a long way to go to get there, but Karl’s year one production doesn’t make KD’s comment ridiculous.

Karl can’t do it on his own.  YOU can help by voting for him (and all of the other NBA Cats) to go to the 2016 All-Star game in Toronto.  Voting ends Monday, so click here or Tweet the player’s name followed by #NBAVote to ensure the #BBNBA is well represented in Canada on February, 14.

    Towns will be better than Davis

      I think that is a bit of a reach at this point.

      Not sure if it is a reach, but I’m not going to say it.

      Either way, they will both be better than me.

      Eye test – Karl can handle the ball better and pass way better, everything else is probably up for debate … probably give an edge to Davis on blocking shots

      Statistics this year (AD in 4th year to KT rookie): Pts/48 – 26.3 (KT) to 30.7 (AD), Reb/48 – 15.2 (KT) to 14.6 (AD), Ast/48 – 2.0 (KT) to 2.2 (AD), Blk/48 – 3.0 (KT) to 3.4 (AD) … 2 FG% – 55.8% (KT) to 51.2% (AD), 3 FG% – 34.5% (KT) to 27.8% (AD), FT% – 84.8% (KT) to 75.0% (AD), A:T – 0.61 (KT) to 0.71 (AD)

      Who do you think has a better supporting cast? Karl is dominating the shooting % numbers, but didn’t have as many assists as I thought he would. I just think Karl is more fluid and has a higher ceiling … my opinion.

    Cousins, Davis, and Towns will go down as some of the best big men of the past 25 years. It’s really amazing when you think about it.
