Potential Warriors pick Edwards chooses Kyrie over Steph


If top NBA draft prospect Anthony Edwards ends up on the Warriors, he surely will be asked about a specific answer he gave to Bleacher Report's Taylor Rooks.

During a sit-down conversation before the NBA season was suspended in mid-March because of the coronavirus pandemic, Rooks asked the Georgia product to provide a starting five of current NBA players.

At point guard, Edwards went with Kyrie Irving over Steph Curry.

It's OK, Mr. Edwards. Everybody makes mistakes (Steph unquestionably is better than Kyrie). We won't hold it against him, especially since he ended up picking Klay Thompson at the "two" after initially choosing James Harden.

"James (is) gonna shoot too much. Can't take James," he explained. "I gotta take Klay Thompson because he's gonna defend, too."

Nice recovery from the 19-year-old.

Also, Edwards is a huge fan of Kevin Durant, but was not onboard with KD's decision to sign with Golden State in 2016.

Lastly, the Atlanta native will not be upset if he calls Chase Center his home arena next season.


"Who wouldn't love to play with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green," Edwards said to Rooks.  "They could make me better at all times. So yeah, I'd love to play with them."
