Jesus, Jet Skis, and bowling: Anthony Edwards is having the greatest summer of all time

August 10, 2021

It’s honestly hard to find a more likeable young personality in the NBA than Anthony Edwards, who has all the disarming goofiness of Giannis, just with less accent and more weirdness. We already covered him having no idea who new Timberwolves owner Alex Rodriguez (A-ROD!!!) is, but now Ant is making headlines during the offseason for apparently having the greatest summer in human history. Grab your boogie board and check it out.

OK, so let’s try to break this down for you. This summer Anthony Edwards …

A. Took up bowling. Can bowl a 200 “for sure.” No bumpers. Why you gotta ask it like that?

B. Got baptized in Lake Minnetonka, hit “a couple backflips.”

C. Jet Skis. That is all.

D. Swam "like Michael Phelps," because duh.

You unironically love to hear it. While the rest of us earth-bound creatures spent our summers re-learning how to talk to other people and remembering that a medium movie theater Mountain Dew is the size of Lake Huron and that bad things happen to your body when you drink the whole thing anyway, Ant was out there rolling strikes and doing backflips for Jesus. Honestly, what more do you need to know?

Hopefully he enjoys it while it lasts, however. In October, Edwards reports for duty with the T-Wolves, now officially America’s worst sports franchise. Losers of over 45 games in six of the past seven seasons, things aren’t great at the Target Center right now, and with no first or second round picks in the 2021 NBA Draft, they don’t look to be getting better anytime soon. But hey, look on the brightside, Ant:

There’s always next summer.
