Welcome to #NBADunkWeek! This week, we celebrate the league's high-flying leapers that are bound to deliver a highlight play each time they step on the floor.
Today, we focus on Minnesota Timberwolves guard Anthony Edwards, who took the league by storm with his athleticism in Year 1.
The Minnesota Timberwolves got it right when they decided to select Anthony Edwards first overall in the 2020 NBA Draft.
In his rookie campaign, Edwards appeared in all 72 games, posting averages of 19.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists. In 36 games after the All-Star break, Edwards was even more impressive, averaging 23.8 points on .454/.349/.762 shooting spits, including a career-high 42 points on March 18.
Not bad for a guy that just celebrated his 20th birthday.
A prolific player of Edwards' calibre finds multiple ways to put points on the board, none louder than his posterizing dunks. He staked his claim for Dunk of the Year with a monster finish over the Toronto Raptors in mid-February.
And that was just one of many dunks that Edwards wowed fans with during his rookie campaign.
In the player above, celebrate #NBADunkWeek by checking out the 10 best dunks from Edwards in the 2020-21 season, some of which are worth a second and third look.
