What is Karl-Anthony Towns carrying on his shoulders, besides a tiny, invisible confidant?
It’s not the weight of the world, but the bulk of his game.
Time and again John Calipari has complained about his freshman big man trying to muscle his way toward the basket using only his upper body instead of establishing with his legs.
Calipari concedes that youth and biology are the co-conspirators for that shortcoming in Towns. He simply hasn’t had the time to add the muscle required to plant his foot and hold his position, to torque his waist and move defenders.
