Anthony Edwards is absolutely filthy.

The Minnesota Timberwolves rookie unleashed arguably the dunk of the year on Friday when he posterized Raptors forward Yuta Watanabe and sent him spiraling to the hardwood.

The throw-down dunk was so disrespectful, but you love to see it if you are a fan of the game.


Damian Lillard has had his own share of ferocious dunks over the years. But when he caught wind of Edwards’ monster dunk, the Trail Blazers star just had to watch for himself.

Lillard quickly noticed that the 2020 No. 1 overall pick was reppin’ his Dame 7 “Day of the Dead,” kicks.

“Must be [the shoes],” the five-time NBA All-Star said via BR Kicks.


While Dame D.O.L.L.A doesn’t likely agree with Edwards’ hot take that he can’t rap, it’s safe to say Edwards got Dame’s seal of approval on the highlight-reel worthy slam. Go get ‘em rook!
