Anthony Edwards Reveals Details Of Draft Workout With Golden State Warriors
Where Steve Kerr Criticized Him: "You Ain't Working Hard Enough"
Anthony Edwards is one of the brightest young talents in the NBA today.
He was drafted 1st overall in 2020 by the Minnesota Timberwolves
and the franchise is already seeing the results from that pick
making the Playoffs after 4 seasons this year with Ant playing
as a certified co-star with Karl-Anthony Towns.
No. 2 pick James Wismena went to the Golden State Warriors
but didn't play a single game in the team's possible NBA Championship run this season.
That year's draft had Edwards, Wiseman, and LaMelo Ball as the top options
so Edwards was not a consensus top pick.
I’m doing this drill that they say Steph be doing. I’m running, touching the line, shoot. Running, touching the line, shoot.
You’ve got to make five in a row. I couldn’t do it. I’m too tired. I’m like, ‘Man, it’s just too much.
But I’m not saying this, so I’m just jogging. After the workout, Steve [Kerr] comes to me like,
‘You can’t go any faster?’ I’m like, ‘I thought I was going pretty fast.’ He was like, ‘Nah, do it again.
Edwards further revealed that he spoke to his trainer after the workout
and he credits that failure to be what motivated him to get to where he is at now with his skill.
