Karl-Anthony Towns recorded his 5,000th career rebound last night.
Among players who debuted after the ABA-NBA merger, only Dwight Howard reached 10,000 points and 5,000 rebounds at a younger age (age in years-days):

Karl-Anthony Towns has a commercial for a COVID home test. That hits. AK – 12:02 AM

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
I think Jokic, Gobert and Embiid are pretty comfortably the All-NBA centers, and Karl-Anthony Towns is probably fourth, but Ayton is absolutely in the conversation if there’s an injury or two. Pretty meaningful considering his upcoming contract negotiations. – 10:47 PM
