The Great One speaks

But nothing is written in stone until The Great One, Minnesota Timberwolves Kevin Garnett, weighs into the conversation. Greatness recognizes greatness, and the truth is that while Kevin Garnett was always in a position to perform at an elite level in the NBA, he pushed himself to do more. It was his resolve that carried him to the NBA Championships, albeit for another NBA team.

Now, the sage legend himself recognizes those qualities in a young Timberwolves player. And in one social media message, he has anointed Anthony Edwards to be destined for great things in the NBA:

Social media is abuzz about the incredible performance of Anthony Edwards, a young 22-year-old who placed the fortune of Team USA and the outcome of the game on his back.

More than a shot-chucker, Ant-Man can defend as well

And deservedly so. Not only did Anthony Edwards put up a ton of points, but he was vital in defending Germany’s best player:

Right now, Anthony Edwards is standing smack dab in center stage under a huge spotlight. And that is not just very good news for Edwards but is excellent news for the future of the Minnesota Timberwolves future.

With his stock rising rapidly, Edwards’s reputation among NBA players could serve to attract future free agents to the Timberwolves roster down the road. After all, who wouldn’t want to hitch their wagon to an NBA rising star?

Ant-Man. Captain America. Thor, God of Thunder. The Incredible Hulk. Whatever Marvel Superhero you use to describe Minnesota Timberwolves star shooting guard Anthony Edwards’s heroics on Team USA is probably underselling his impact. But don’t take my word for it . . .

Hot. How many games will Karl-Anthony Towns play now that we know the 2023-24 NBA schedule?. light

Just ask LeBron James.
