Anthony Edwards…My NBA Rookie Of The Year

Actually…on this last day of the NBA regular season there’s quite a bit up for grabs seeding wise as the league finishes its condensed 72 game schedule.

I doubt I even watch Sam Presti’s shamelessly tanking Thunder close out their season as the world of sports is getting ready to be very, very good with the Stanley Cup Playoffs and the NBA Playoffs getting going simultaneously.

I’ll do this award first…kind of like the Oscars with Best Supporting Actor early in the show. BTW…for the first time in my adult life I didn’t watch the Oscars this year. I never went to a movie theatre…so I had no emotional attachment to any of the nominated movies. With me…it’s always about emotional attachment.

I wonder where Cade would prefer to go. Surely…he doesn’t want to end up in the home state of white supremacy terrorism and play for the Thunder…but we’ll see. This is the NBA’s collective bargaining agreement, that being, some blacks have to play in Oklahoma. You know…kind of like slavery.

Anthony was the first pick in last year’s draft coming from the Georgia Bulldogs. Slowly, but surely his game has adjusted to the NBA level and he’s been on a tear of late.

I wonder what Cade, Anthony, and Karl Anthony-Townes together would look like?

Anthony’s rookie stats read 19.1 ppg, 4.7 rebounds ppg, and 2.9 ast ppg.

I wonder if it comes down to OKC and Minnesota for Cade. Imagine…you win the honor of being the first player taken in the draft and you then either have to play in the home state of domestic terrorism where 90% of the people think a Republican dominated Supreme Court ruled against their grifter punk Trump in some sort of conspiracy or you have to play in the city where Derek Chauvin murdered George Floyd.

I think if I were Cade I’d opt for the sunshine of Orlando.

Que sera…we’ll see.

Anthony Edwards…nice rookie season, buddy.

And here’s this…since we didn’t have an Oscars show. Fabulous Baker Boys is probably in my top five all-time. Clearly…my favorite Jeff Bridges movie.

    1. Only two players received first place votes… Ball and Anthony Edwards. I went with Edwards.

      Ball…15.7 ppg, 5.9 rbs, 6.1 apg.
      Edwards… 19.2 ppg, 4.7 rbs, 2.9 apg.

      Different players. I could see an argument for either player. Thanks for your in depth thoughts.
