Kevin Garnett Believes Anthony Edwards Mirrors A Young Michael Jordan


Anthony Edwards has emerged as one of the biggest rising stars in the NBA today. The Minnesota Timberwolves guard is unstoppable, with the ability to power through defenses, posterize defenders with his incredible bounce, and create shots from anywhere on the floor.

Oftentimes, Edwards finds himself being compared to six-time NBA champion Michael Jordan. Some note their physical similarities, while others argue that Edwards possesses the same skills and demeanor as Jordan.

Adding to the sentiment, former Boston Celtics big man Kevin Garnett thinks Edwards, who’s averaging 25.9 points, 5.2 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game on 46.5% shooting for the season, is playing like MJ in 1984.


“He’s like a young ’84 Jordan, boy. You hear me?” Garnett declared. “If [forward Karl-Anthony Towns] weren’t on his team, he’d be averaging 30-something points per game. You hear what I’m saying to you?”
