Anthony Edwards sees himself quickly becoming one of the faces of the NBA

 » I am the most confident person in the world. For those who still doubt it, Anthony Edwards rarely misses an opportunity to remind him.  » Ever since I was a kid, I always thought I was the best at everything I did. My brothers made me feel like that. Competing against them made me feel like the best person in the world “, develops the back of the Wolves interviewed by

A year before joining the MVP race…

If we do not doubt his ability to increase his offensive performance, the rear will however have to fight to obtain a first invitation to the star game. Especially as a holder, in a hyper-competitive Western conference on outside positions.

Last season, he finished in 11th place in the popular vote (behind Malik Monk in particular…) with barely 400,000 votes, light years away from the more than 7 million ballots collected by Stephen Curry. Joining the discussion to be selected would already be a step forward for him, who imagines himself in the very near future reaching the top of the league.  » I need one more year.

The 20-year-old says he agrees with Karl-Anthony Towns: with the former Jazz pivot, it will be  » the title or nothing « .  » Rudy’s arrival puts pressure on us. It is awesome. He’s going to make life difficult for everyone in the circle and that’s what we needed. So I think it’s a great acquisition “, rejoices the rear.
