NBA fans and players love to create imaginary teams, especially when they have the freedom to pick stars from different eras. When it comes to all-time starting lineups, things take a different dimension. Scottie Pippen named his all-time starting five, just like Carmelo Anthony, and they aren't the only ones to do so.
Anthony Edwards recently joined this trend when he was asked about his lineup, and he had some interesting selections. Ant-Man knows the game and what makes a player great. During the premiere of Netflix's Hustle, where he participated, the Minnesota Timberwolves star revealed his five starters.
Boasting huge confidence, Edwards picked himself as part of the team, while filling the rest of the lineup with legendary players. He went with Allen Iverson, himself, LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Shaquille O'Neal.
NBA fans reacted to his selections, joking about the fact that he picked himself over other all-time great shooting guards like Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant.
Ant looks so HAPPY! Kid is a joy to the game and is confidence is supreme.
😂😂 we all knew he was gonna put himself
MJ took it personally
No Kobe or MJ 😂. Great GM
Where grant williams at?
Mike come get your kid
mj son confirmed
very ant answer
He forgot his dad, MJ
Dude has definitely played blacktop on 2k many many times
Peeps really getting salty with HIS opinion of a starting 5 🥴
Bro tried sneaking in himself💀
No cap that team sound nasty, even with him on the team it could be scary asl
NO MJ hmmm bold take
Switch him out for Kobe or MJ and that team is unbeatable
Funny he thinks he better than Kobe
This is the worst five I've ever heard
Thank god he is not a gm
He could’ve picked Kobe over Bron
No Jordan is nuts and also Iverson over Magic? hell nah
he thinks he’s jordan so put mj instead of him and that’s a pretty fair all time 5
That starting 5 is going nowhere fast
As usual, Edwards had to put himself among the greatest to play the game and while many criticized him for that, others celebrated his confidence. This kid is already doing great stuff in the league and nobody knows how high he can finish his career. It's great to see that he has high expectations of himself, but now it's time to back that up with good performances. Perhaps, at the end of his career, he will be selected for some of these teams, but we have to wait awhile until that moment.
