Anthony Edwards Says Michael Jordan Couldn’t Have Guarded Him If He Played In Today’s NBA
Anthony Edwards is one of the most polarizing stars in today’s game, averaging 23.6 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 5.2 assists per game on 43.7% shooting from the field, leading the Minnesota Timberwolves to the first seed in the Western Conference.
In arguably the best season of his career, Edwards seems very confident about his talent and skills as a basketball player. He demonstrated this by giving a controversial and unreserved response to a hypothetical scenario involving six-time NBA champion Michael Jordan.
Jordan was nearly unguardable, as evidenced by his 10 scoring titles, and he was also a formidable defender, proven by his multiple All-Defensive Team selections and his Defensive Player of the Year award.
However, Edwards doesn’t think the Chicago Bulls legend could have guarded him if he played in today’s NBA, even though he acknowledges Jordan as the greatest player to ever play the game of basketball.
“He’s the greatest to ever play basketball and I’m so far from it.” However, when asked if he believed Jordan could guard him in today’s NBA, Edwards responded, “Hell nah. No.”
