Karl Towns is tearing it up in the NBA right now, with six double doubles in his first eight games. He’s currently averaging 16.1 points and 10.5 rebounds, which puts him in some rare air as a rookie, but shouldn’t come as a surprise to any of us who saw him play at Kentucky.
Before he was turning heads in the pros, Karl was doing his best to get to know his idols. Last night, TNT aired this footage of a young Karl Towns interviewing Kevin Durant his freshman year of high school:

Karl being Karl, he dressed nicely for the interview, professionally and politely asked the questions, and wished Durant “continued success on and off the court.” Karl will face off against Durant on January 12, meaning we’ll probably see this clip a million times between now and then.
And now I miss Karl.
