    Edwards have been getting a lot of press lately for his play with team USA and Iím interested in peoples take of his upcoming season.

    Personally, I see him putting up big traditional stats area, something like 28 ppg, 5 a, 6 r, 1.5 s and 1 bpg, with ok efficiency (thinking 50% 2pfg, 36% on 3 and 78% FTs. But I see him putting up relatively empty stats where his advances stats will be around 0.1 ws/48, +3 in BPM and 2.5 VORP. I donít see the wolves improving significantly in anyway as they will fight for a play in spot, maybe making 6th seed if the chips fall.

    As an aside, I also somehow see Scoot having a somewhat similar game to him, but with more kick outs and perhaps less scoring. But itís too early to tell.

    Nothing matters until he and his team start winning playoff series. Maybe he and them will take a step forward, have talent but remains to be seen.

    the best prediction is that ST will irrationally dislike him as they do with about 99% of the league's good players

    Agree with OP. The recent Edwards hype/push is mostly a product of Williamson and Morant lacking the availability and image necessary to promote by the league and it's sponsors, so they need another young American with a game and personality that's easy to sell the casuals.

    Tatum is still young, but experienced enough that they're figuring out he's more George than James/Durant, so now they've moved on to pretending Edwards can become the "face of the league" post James/Curry because heaven forbid it be a bunch of international (mostly) bigs.

    Not going to dwell on Ants play bc that's speaking for itself but his personality and charisma is beyond anything I can remember in any sport. He is a treasure and you don't usually see that in stars.

    Gotta admit I’m wrong so far. I still don’t see him as worthy of the mvp type hype. The wolves are gelling and gobert is a huge reason. Ant is pulling his weight on O though.

    For all the we give Gobert, one must admit he has been a key reason to the team success so far... dude is having the best defensive year of his career

    time to repent, my dude

    I would take [Reaves] over Edwards in a minute, because Edwards is an idiot, and beyond self absorbed. His refusal to come off the bench for a few weeks for the USMNT just punched his ticket off of the Olympic team.
    He's an idiot. He'll be vastly overpaid for his productivity, and be known as an awful contract within 2 years.

    I remember a game we played where he dunked, and stayed on that end while Tre got the inbounds pass, and got the Spurs an easy basket 5 on 4 while Ant Man was still flexing. If I were the GM, I'd be trying to trade his dumb ass.

    Oh, and his failure to set the MN scoring record while being left in the game for half a dozen possessions to score 3 points.

    NBA junk food.
    Garland is WAY overpaid, and Ant Edwards is a dumbass.
