VIDEO: Timberwolves’ Anthony Edwards gets head at the rim on vicious one-hand dunk

Timberwolves, Anthony Edwards

Minnesota Timberwolves rookie Anthony Edwards continues to dazzle NBA fans with his athleticism. His latest feat: a vicious one-handed slam that left the Sacramento Kings speechless.

After receiving the pass from D’Angelo Russell, Edwards quickly drove to the hoop. This caught the Kings’ defense off guard as there was practically no one who covered him. And so the first overall pick of the 2020 NBA Draft made the Kings pay with a vicious spike.

Here’s a closer look at Edwards’ slam. Even Karl-Anthony Towns was shaken at how high the Timberwolves rookie got up. It’s important to note that Edwards just stands 6-foot-4.

Anthony Edwards’ highlight reel against the Kings doesn’t stop there. Below is another proof of the young gun’s talents. He seems to be a natural at finishing the play via a nasty slam. Like the first play, Edwards went to work right after getting the hand-off. This caught the defense off guard yet again and Ant-Man punished them.

Anthony Edwards is the favorite to win Rookie of the Year this season by most analysts after LaMelo Ball’s injury. Time will tell if he indeed wins it with Ball’s impending return. Whether or not he takes the plum, he sure has a very promising basketball career ahead of him.
