Kevin Garnett Crowns Anthony Edwards the ‘Alpha,’ Drawing Comparisons to NBA Legends

During a recent interview on The Stephen A. Smith Show, Minnesota Timberwolves icon Kevin Garnett showered praise on the team’s budding star, Anthony Edwards. Edwards has been called the “alpha” of every series he has played in by Garnett, who praised his self-assurance and ability to step up to the plate in the playoffs.

NBA greats like LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Carmelo Anthony were compared by Garnett to Edwards’ unshakeable confidence. “I haven’t seen a kid with this much confidence since LeBron, Wade, and Carmelo,” Garnett said, praising Edwards’ remarkably high level of confidence for a 22-year-old.

With his incredible postseason performances, Edwards has helped the Timberwolves reach their first Western Conference finals since Garnett joined the team in 2004. Edwards has been a steady scorer in the postseason, averaging 28.9 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 5.9 assists. He has scored 30 points or more five times, including three games with 40 points or more.

The previous first-overall pick in the 2020 draft has proven to be the Timberwolves’ dream franchise player, and he may help the team to their first-ever trip to the NBA Finals. But they have to overcome Luka Dončić and the powerful Dallas Mavericks in the conference finals before they can achieve greatness.

The Mavericks are also trying to make it to their first Finals since 2011. They recently upset the top-seeded Oklahoma City Thunder. With two young, talented teams facing off in what looks to be an exciting series, Edwards’ “alpha” mentality will probably be a major factor in the outcome.

The fact that Garnett calls Edwards the “alpha” player highlights the young player’s enormous potential and contribution to the Timberwolves’ success. The Mavericks will surely meet a strong foe in the Western Conference finals if Edwards can keep up his commanding presence and improve his play.
