Minnesota Timberwolves’ star center Karl-Anthony Towns turns 24 today.

Towns is averaging 25.8 points, 12.0 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game so far this season.

If he keeps up those numbers and that level of play, his name could be in the discussion for MVP.

Here is a video of Towns interviewing one of his basketball idols Kevin Durant in 2012, when Towns was a freshman in high school.
