Anthony Edwards has no idea who Alex Rodriguez, potential Timberwolves owner, is
Anthony Edwards, meet Alex Rodriguez: your potential future boss. Oh, and just one of the most talented, charismatic, and controversial MLB players of this millennium.
As Rodriguez and e-commerce billionaire Marc Lore continued to sign a deal with current Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor to take over the Minnesota franchise, reporters asked current gamers for their thoughts on their potential new boss.
But Edwards, the Georgia rookie, has no idea who Rodriguez is, as this extraordinarily funny video shows:

Hey, at least he’s honest. And the explanation that he just doesn’t watch baseball – like only MLB fans know Rodriguez – is pure comedy. It’s not that Edwards doesn’t understand the sport of baseball, either. In the video below, he describes how talented he would be as a multi-athlete star to play in MLB if he had chosen this career path:
To be fair, 19-year-old Edwards wasn’t even born when Rodriguez began his MLB career with the Seattle Mariners in 1994. And he was only 15 years old when Rodriguez put on the cleats for the last time after the 2016 season.
Still, you’d think he’d at least heard from someone who’s been a 14-time All-Star selection, three-time AL MVP, two-time Gold Glove Award winner, and 10-time Silver Slugger Award winner, among others. And that doesn’t mean anything about his controversial PED usage, which cost Rodriguez the entire 2014 season due to the suspension.
Think of it this way: if Rodriguez takes ownership of the Timberwolves, Edwards will have many opportunities to learn more about his new boss in the future.
