The Minnesota Timberwolves have started the season really well so far. One of last season's worst performers, the Timberwolves came back healthy and with all their key players. Karl-Anthony Towns, D'Angelo Russell, and Anthony Edwards have formed one of the most formidable trios in the NBA today.
All three players have started their season in great form. The trio of Edwards, KAT, and Russell is averaging double-digit points for the season, and gelling really well. This may have been the long-term plan for the Timberwolves, who have been a floundering franchise for a very long time now.
Last night, the Timberwolves got a big win over the defending champions Milwaukee Bucks. Despite the efforts of Giannis Antetokounmpo, who scored 40 points, the Timberwolves got the win. Edwards himself had a great game, putting up 25 points in the process.
After the game, Edwards spoke about how difficult it was to guard Giannis Antetokounmpo throughout the night. He had a hilarious take on how Giannis' dominance makes it really difficult to try and stop him from getting what he wants in a game.
"With a guy like that you can’t stress about him scoring. That’s what he gonna do. Motherf**ker’s like 7-2, 280 pounds. Sh*t, we put four people on him and he’ll still score the ball. "
Edwards is one of the funniest players in the NBA, and always has hilarious responses to journalists asking him questions. Most recently, he hit a dagger three against the Houston Rockets and told head coach Stephen Silas to call a time out because they weren't able to stop him.
While his comments are always humorous, Edwards' game is no laughing matter. There is a reason he was the first overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. And over his time in the league, he has shown that he has the makings of a future superstar in the NBA.
