Karl Towns Jr. will be playing in the Nike Hoop Summit Saturday night in Portland and will be in front of many large crowds during his collegiate and professional careers if all goes as planned. He says Monday’s bombings at the Boston Marathon that killed three and injured almost 200 won’t change how he lives, but it did touch him.

“It’s just one of those things that is so terrifying in America where we think we have the most safe country and yet something radical like this could happen,” Towns said. “It is very scary. But you never know what life holds. I live every day to the fullest and leave nothing on the table. Life is so short, you can never know when it will become shorter.

“My prayers and best wishes go out to the families of the injured and dead. It is one of those things that is so tragic, but it will make our country stronger. I play for the Dominicans, but I am still an American and my heart hurts for those families who had loved ones killed or hurt.”

    MG…this kid is so grounded and mature for his age. In addition, his athleticism and talent level seem to off the chart as well. I can’t wait till he plays for us. I am also very sure that he isn’t talking to Wigs about coming to UK to play…..right!!

      Mike, you are exactly right about Towns. He’s more mature than me right now. Very exceptional young man

  • Jim Boyers says:

    Everything he says is something ALL Americans need to live by. The only way a terror organization wins is if they effect the everyday lives of normal people. Everyone needs to live their lives, without letting fear rule over them. Be hyper-vigilant and safe, but live your life to the fullest that you can. THAT is the best way to make a statement to these pieces of human garbage.

  • Larry Pup says:

    His comments are reassuring in the truth his message conveys. He is a great and remarkable young man.
