Who Is Anthony Edwards?
Anthony DeVante Edwards, also known as Ant-Man, is a young basketball player from the United States. He was born on August 5, 2001, in Atlanta, Georgia, and is currently a shooting guard for the Minnesota Timberwolves in the National Basketball Association (NBA). Edwards has made a name for himself in the league with his impressive skills on the court, despite being only 21 years old.
Edwards started playing basketball after shifting his focus from football, in which he played as a running back, quarterback, and cornerback. He trained with Justin Holland, an Atlanta-based basketball trainer, and played with the Atlanta Xpress 15-under Amateur Athletic Union team. He was considered a four-star recruit by Rivals in 2016. Edwards then moved to Holy Spirit Preparatory School in Atlanta, where he was rated a consensus five-star recruit and one of the best players in the 2019 class by major recruiting services. As a senior, he earned McDonald’s All-American and USA Today All-USA first-team honours.
After finishing high school, Edwards committed to playing college basketball for the Georgia Bulldogs, where he was named SEC Freshman of the Year after his freshman season. Edwards was considered the program’s best recruit in the modern recruiting era and was drawn to Georgia because two of his favourite players, Dwyane Wade and Victor Oladipo, had been coached in college by head coach Tom Crean.
Edwards was selected with the first overall pick by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the 2020 NBA Draft, making him the program’s highest draft pick since 2015. He quickly established himself as a rising star in the league, scoring a career-high 42 points in a game against the Phoenix Suns, becoming the third youngest player to score 40+ points in NBA history. Edwards continued to make waves throughout his rookie season, finishing second in Rookie of the Year voting and being named to the NBA All-Rookie First Team.
In his second season, Edwards continued to impress, scoring a career-high 48 points in a game against the Golden State Warriors. He also became just the seventh player in NBA history to score 2,000 points in his first 100 games at age 20 or younger, joining LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Luka Dončić, and Zion Williamson. Edwards set a new NBA record on January 25, 2022, by becoming the first player to record a stat line of at least 40 points, nine rebounds, three blocks, three steals, and five three-pointers in a single game. He continued to impress throughout the season, scoring a career-high 49 points in a game against the San Antonio Spurs.
However, Edwards’ success in the NBA has not translated into playoff success. In his playoff debut, he logged 36 points and six assists in a game against the Memphis Grizzlies in the opening round of the 2022 NBA playoffs, but Minnesota eventually lost to Memphis.
