One of the main ingredients to be a transcendent player in the NBA is irrational confidence. Anthony Edwards has it in oodles.
The rookie caused a stir ahead of draft night when his interview with ESPN came to light. Edwards seemed to indicate that basketball wasn’t really his first priority. At the time, he said he could ‘rap like Lil Baby’ and that he’d drop his NBA career for the NFL given a chance.
The youngster considers himself supremely talented, and he believes he can crack the code to anything he wants to do. This kind of attitude is something only Zlatan Ibrahimovic brings forth in all of sports.
Edwards had a really good debut game for the Wolves last night. His 15 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists helped the Wolves to a win over the Pistons in their season opener.
Anthony Edwards says he can play any sport he wants to
This entire interview segment was something completely out of the ordinary.
Gellner: Sounds like you’re just an athlete. Ping pong, baseball, football, basketball.
Edwards: Tennis, swimming, Lacrosse. Whatever you need me to play I’m going to go do it. If it’s some money on the line, I’m going to go do it.
Gellner: Can you golf?
Edwards: Whatever you need me to do.
Gellner: Okay, hockey?
Edwards: Whatever. On the rink. Whatever you need me to do. It don’t matter. Trashcan ball. Whatever you need me to do. Cook food, cook food. That’s something to do. I bet I’ll be A1 from day 1.
This Anthony Edwards interview is straight comedy 😂
