NBA Scout Believes The Timberwolves Are Anthony Edwards' Team: "It's Not Karl-Anthony Towns' Team, And KAT Knows It."

Anthony Edwards and Karl-Anthony Towns

The Minnesota Timberwolves have made their first playoffs since the 2018 season this year, and there's no doubt that this year could potentially be a building block for them to become a top-tier playoff team.

Anthony Edwards and Karl-Anthony Towns are the two main stars on the roster. Most people would agree that Karl-Anthony Towns is currently a better player, but that Anthony Edwards has the potential to take that mantle in the future.

A scout that spoke to Michael Scotto of HoopsHype has suggested that Minnesota Timberwolves are already Anthony Edwards' team and that Karl-Anthony Towns "knows it":

“It’s Ant’s team. It’s not KAT’s team, and KAT knows it. I think that’s the future for them. I wish his basketball IQ was a little better. He’s definitely a competitor and not the nonchalant guy that people thought he was coming out of college. For him to become that bonafide superstar, he has to have the basketball IQ. His defensive commitment has to be better. I think he’s already on his way to becoming a heck of a player. Will he become a top 10 or top 20 guy in the league? It remains to be seen. Playing in the playoffs was a great thing for him. If you play on a losing team, you don’t get that much exposure and chance to rise up to the challenge or taste winning.”

It remains to be seen if Anthony Edwards will in fact become that top-tier superstar, but if he does, then the Minnesota Timberwolves could be a title contender sooner rather than later. Karl-Anthony Towns is the perfect star to put with him. Notably, Karl-Anthony Towns is an elite scorer, and he became the first center since Shaquille O'Neal to score 60 points in a game this season.

Hopefully, the Minnesota Timberwolves manage to figure things out and become a regular playoff team in the future. They have a good amount of talent, and with some moves, they could be really dangerous.
