How Old was Karl-Anthony Towns in this Picture?

John Calipari is still recovering from a minor surgery he had a few weeks back, but he’s been busy on the road the last few days.


Earlier this week, Calipari was in Chicago to check in on PJ Washington, Hamidou Diallo, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, and Kevin Knox at the NBA Draft combine. He followed that with a trip to Newport Beach (CA.), where he had dinner with Julius Randle and Karl-Anthony Towns.

Calipari spending time with Towns must have brought back memories from when he coached him on the Dominican national team. Saturday night, Calipari tweeted a picture of a young Karl-Anthony Towns on an airplane.


In the picture below, how old do you think he was at the time? My guess is 16, maybe 17.
