Phenom Karl Towns has Dirk Nowitzki's game

Karl Towns, a 6-11 power forward, is a 16-year-old with a 24-year-old’s disposition and a 33-year-old’s game. The specific 33-year-old in question: Dirk Nowitzki. That’s the direction Towns’ development is headed, and his experience as a deep reserve with the Dominican national team only can accelerate his progress. The presence of Towns on the Dominican team is viewed by many as some sort of gambit by coach John Calipari to gain an advantage in the recruitment of a player who likely will be the most prized prospect in the Class of 2015.
