The explosive guard for the Minnesota Timberwolves, Anthony Edwards, is getting ready to play in his second NBA All-Star Game and hopes to wow the crowd with his ambidextrous display.

Although Anthony Edwards is coming off the bench for the Western Conference team, his resolve to leave a lasting impact on Sunday night’s festivities remains unwavering.

Edwards stated in a Friday night interview that he would only use his left hand the entire time, making light of the possible effect on his field goal percentage. He joked, “It’s the All-Star Game,” suggesting that this exhibition game is not particularly important in terms of statistics.

The 22-year-old, primarily right-handed, expressed his confidence in his left-handed shot, hinting at its debut in a game situation after the Timberwolves’ dominant victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.
