Everything the Minnesota Timberwolves accomplished on Sunday night to win Game 7 at Ball Arena in Denver was nothing short of incredible. Immediately after the win, Anthony Edwards put the headset on to speak with the TNT crew for a postgame interview. Anytime Ant gets a mic, you know it’s going to be a good time.

Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals will be played at Target Center in Minneapolis, which means the “Inside the NBA” crew, including Charles Barkley, Shaq, Kenny Smith and (host) Ernie Johnson will be making their way north to the Land of 10,000 Lakes this week, a location on the U.S. map that those guys don’t frequently travel.

Anthony Edwards invites TNT crew to Minnesota

Well, if they were hoping for an invitation, Anthony Edwards gave them one shortly after he donned the headset Sunday night. When Barkley told Ant that it’s been a long time since he has visited Minnesota, just like any good Minnesotan, made his invitation very clear, “bring ya ass”.

The “bring ya ass” comment was a thing the moment it left Anthony Edwards’ lips. It started with tweets and memes, reaction articles, etc. Soon after, T-shirts and merchandise has followed. But local comedian Jon Savitt took a different angle. He purchased “bringyaass.com“.

Helping outsiders navigate uncharted Minnesota Timberwolves territory

But instead of using the newly minted URL to his own financial advantage, he redirecting it to… the Explore Minnesota website. Why? To be helpful to outsiders, of course.

This way, Barkley, Kenny and others who are looking to visit can more easily find the things they are looking for while exploring the uncharted waters of the Northstar State. And hey, those waters aren’t even frozen right now so there is a lot to do.

Inside the NBA has become among the biggest staples surrounding the game, and the TNT crew including Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith, Shaquille O’Neal, and Ernie Johnson remains must-see viewing as you never know what hilarious comment will come out next.

Immediately after securing a spot in the Western Conference Finals, Anthony Edwards was rocking the headset and being asked questions about what is to come. A “best of” section highlights food and drink options, which should be more than sufficient to direct Barkley should he truly be looking for recommendations.

Savitt utilized some quick thinking and wit and captured the iconic moment perfectly. For Edwards, he just adds yet another banger quote to his arsenal, one that’s already packed full for a kid who is just 22-years-old.

Dallas Mavericks coming to town too

Dallas Mavericks fans will also embark upon Minneapolis in the days ahead as the Minnesota Timberwolves have home court advantage for the Western Conference Finals. As the three seed, Chris Finch’s club will host the first two tilts against a Dallas team that they owned a 3-1 record against during the regular season.

Edwards will be tasked with shutting down Kyrie Irving on the perimeter, and some combination of Karl Anthony Towns and Jaden McDaniels should be expected to focus on playmaker Luka Doncic. Minnesota is looking to head to the NBA Finals for the first time in franchise history, and this team appears to be on some sort of a collision course to make it happen.
