Anthony Edwards Is Happy His 2020 Draft Class Is Doing So Well


Ever since getting drafted with the first and third picks, Anthony Edwards and LaMelo ball have taken the league by storm.

Not only have they already become stars in the league, they also were able to help turn around the trajectory of their respective franchises.

Edwards has been a key reasons of the Wolves’ current success and has taken yet another giant step this season, averaging 21.9 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.5 steals per game. Edwards not only is loved by Wolves fans, but by the general NBA audience. He’s an amazing player, funny and a man of the people, so it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise.

The same arguments are valid for LaMelo Ball, who even will make his first NBA All-Star appearance this coming Sunday. Ball entered the league with a lot of doubts hanging over him as the #3 overall pick, but he hasn’t been messing around and has been silencing all his doubters in his rookie of the year award winning season, and in his All-Star sophomore season.

The entire Draft Class has been great so far, with other players like Tyrese Haliburton, Desmond Bane, Tyrese Maxi, Patrick Williams, Isaac Okoro, Obi Topspin, Devin Vassell, Cole Anthony, Isaiah Stewart, Saddiq Bey, Precious Achiuwa, and many others, who have already proven that they’ll have a long future in this league.

With the draft class viewed as one of the worser ones of the decade before its draft, all the players have come out blazing, while playing with a chip on their shoulders. This is also what Anthony Edwards revealed during the Rising Stars Media Availability ahead of the Rising Stars Game this All-Star Weekend in Cleveland:


“I’ve been telling him [LaMelo] the other day, ‘keep ballin’, keep doing you’. Cause before we got drafted, they were saying how our draft class is going to be terrible and all this yada yada. Everybody in my draft class, I’m just happy to see them being successful in the league cause of how much they had to say bad about us.”
