Future Watch: Anthony Edwards Basketball Cards, Minnesota Timberwolves – When you’re nabbed first overall in an Entry Draft, regardless of the sport or level, you’re entering directly into a world of high expectation. The pressure is enormous to say the least, but the 2020 NBA Draft first selection, Anthony Edwards, is ready and primed to shoulder this immense intensity.
The 6’5″ shooting guard comes to Minnesota with an immense reputation behind him. In 32 college games played with Georgia, Edwards had a sparkling PPG average of 19.1, a .772 free throw rate and a rebound average of 5.2.
If there was any weak point in Edwards’ game, it was his shooting from the arc. His .294 average on threes certainly wasn’t of caliber that would get him opportunities – and more importantly minutes – on most NBA floors, but Edwards has openly stated that he’s putting in the extra time to improve this facet of his game.
“I feel like the main thing I’ve been working on is my catch-and-shoot 3-point shots,” he told The Undefeated. “I feel like my catch-and-shoot has improved tremendously. So, that’s what I’m going to be showing a lot next season when I get into the league. I haven’t really changed anything [in shooting form]. It’s just repetition.”
Check out this extended look at Edwards’ supreme play in the NCAA:
Collectors itching for their first cardboard of Edwards have been handed some great cards so far by Panini, through their agreement with the NCAA. Among these are cards from Prizm Draft Picks and Contenders Draft Picks. With the NBA resuming play in less than a month and the first 2020-21 league sets on the way, NBA gear cards of Edwards will arrive soon, and with them will be nationwide attention on this supreme basketball star in wait.
