I’m sort of embarrassed at how little we’ve talked about Karl-Anthony Towns on this here website. We’ve heaped plenty of deserved praise on fellow rookie Kristaps Porzingis, but Towns has been just as thrilling (and more productive) in his first NBA season.

Towns finished last night’s game with 19 points, 13 rebounds, five assists, and three blocks. He went for 27-11 against the Cavs on Monday, and he hit the the Mavericks with an absurd 27-17 to go along with six blocks last Wednesday. Also:
