It's not everyday that you run into a professional basketball player at your local gym, and it's certainly not everyday that you muster up the courage to ask him to join a basketball league, despite not recognizing himl.

Karl-Anthony Towns detailed a story via Twitter on Wednesday in which a random gym member pleaded him to register for a particular league -- not because he's a world-beating big man -- but because he is "tall."

We can't completely slight the individual's scouting prowess, however, as he did mention that he thought Towns played ball in high school. That's gotta count for something, right?
