The Minnesota Timberwolves season ended in an ugly fashion on Thursday night, but the work is just beginning for Anthony Edwards. Coming up short in the Western Conference Finals, plenty of blame can be placed on the Minnesota Timberwolves 22-year-old star.

While Anthony Edwards was prolific during a series with the Denver Nuggets, he got lost at times when facing the Dallas Mavericks. Motivation has never been something he has shied away from however, and Adidas used that notion in the latest commercial for Edwards’ AE 1 shoe.

Anthony Edwards hears all the hate

While there are plenty of fans that have praised Anthony Edwards’ game this season, some of his peers, and those that came before him, have questioned if he has what it takes to find another level. The video has captions.

Rocking a Minnesota Timberwolves green colorway of his Adidas AE 1’s in the spot, Edwards says “I hear all the hate.” Carmelo Anthony said, “Are you committed to really going out there and being the face of the league? Because they throwing that term around too loosely.”

Shrugging off the notion and continuing to get buckets, that’s the same type of mentality Edwards will need to have when working this offseason. Not looking to make this Western Conference Finals appearance a one-and-done scenario, the Timberwolves playmaker will be back in the lab this offseason.

We’ll see the Minnesota Timberwolves superstar in Paris with Team USA soon

Although the Minnesota Timberwolves season is over, the offseason for Anthony Edwards has a significantly different plan than some of his peers. Playing for Team USA, and expected to be among the biggest contributors for a gold medal winning squad, watching him develop further among some greats should be appointment viewing.

Adidas will unquestionably have new offerings of Edwards’ AE 1 shoe, including the debut of a low profile version that the Timberwolves star broke out during the playoffs. While Edwards may be shy of superstar status in the eyes of some, his play in Paris could help to change the minds of many.

“This is only the beginning, cause I’m not who they think I am. I’m better” Edwards wraps up the spot with a dunk, both in action and quote form. He’ll quickly have an opportunity to prove it, and then all eyes will be on the Minnesota Timberwolves and their ascent in the year ahead. Believe that.
