After the Timberwolves lost to the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday, Edwards was honest and candid about not knowing who the future owner of the Timberwolves is. He said he doesn’t know much about baseball, but what he does know is that Rodriguez is going to be the owner of his team soon.
Anthony Edwards on his feelings about Alex Rodriguez being the Timberwolves new owner:
"I don't know who that is. I know he's going to be the owner. But I don't know anything about baseball."

In Anthony Edwards’ defense, Alex Rodriguez retired from baseball in 2016. The rookie is only 19 years old and was still in high school when Rodriguez was in his prime. He also admitted that he isn’t a baseball fan, so it makes sense why he’s never heard of Rodriguez.
However, what Edwards probably now knows is that Rodriguez will be in control of the Timberwolves starting 2023.
Together with billionaire Marc Lore, Rodriguez is expected to finalize a deal with Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor in the next 30 days. Once the two take over, it’s safe to say that Edwards could very much be an even better player than he is right now—which is saying a lot considering how well he’s played so far in his rookie season.

Edwards is one of the choices to win the 2020-21 Rookie of the Year award. Besides his hilarious postgame interviews, he’s also putting a show on the court by averaging 17.9 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.6 assists a game.
He has played better since head coach Chris Finch took over. Edwards has had a couple of highlight plays and has shown glimpses of what he can be in the years to come.
