The NBA might have a new face of the league, and it looks like most fans are on board for it.

Minnesota Timberwolves’ guard Anthony Edwards has the skills and charisma to make him one of the best-known players in the world. These playoffs have put his personality out to more and more fans, letting more people follow his journey.

It is not only how he is winning but also how he is doing it. 

In the first round, he faced off against one of the best offensive teams of all time in the Phoenix Suns. Edwards has said multiple times that his favorite player of all time is Kevin Durant, a member of the Suns, and that now that he got to face him, he wanted to prove himself.

As the series was going on, clips surfaced of Edwards talking trash to Durant. This only made fans like him more and cheer for him going into possibly the hardest series he will have.

The Timberwolves matched up against last year’s champion Denver Nuggets with MVP Nikola Jokic. Fans were all on board for Edwards to once again shine, and taking the first two games of the series gave fans hope the Wolves could take down Denver.

But after dropping the next three games, it looked like the series was lost. Yet Edwards didn’t back away from the challenge. He continued talking trash, being confident, and proving to the world that he was worthy enough to bear the “face of the NBA” title.

The Wolves won the next two games. 

Edwards’ playoff run has been one to remember. Viewers from all across the league are cheering him on, even if they are fans of another team. As LeBron continues to get older, the league looks to find a player who can do what he has done for the league. Edwards looks ready for the task.
