Anthony Edwards to Charles Barkley: “Bring ya ass!”

Following the Minnesota Timberwolves’ epic second half come back to win game 7, rising star Anthony Edwards and NBA Hall of Fame inductee Charles Barkley shared a fun exchange during a post game interview.

Beaming into TNT’s Inside the NBA after Minnesota’s 98-90 victory over the second seed Denver Nuggets, Anthony Edwards displayed what is becoming his typical brand of charm. He began by acknowledging his frustrating performance during the game. Edwards tied for his worst scoring night of the playoffs so far, putting up 16 points on 6-of-24 shooting. However, he did manage eight assists and seven rebounds. He used this as an opportunity to display his leadership skills and elevate his team. He credited their performance for digging the Wolves out of the 20-point hole they were in during the third quarter. Speaking to Ernie Johnson, Edwards said “I couldn’t find my rhythm tonight, so I just had to trust my teammates, man…big shoutout to those guys.”

When it became Charles Barkley’s turn to speak to Anthony Edwards, he immediately congratulated Edwards on the win. Berkley quickly admitted that he hadn’t been to Minnesota in “probably 20 years”. Before he could even finish his sentence, Edwards invited him to the state, telling him to “bring ya ass” without missing a beat. Laughter ensued from the entire table. The exchange ended with Barkley characteristically asking Edwards for restaurant recommendations, to which Edwards said he would happily oblige.

I fact checked Charles Barkley. His last confirmed visit to Minnesota was in 2019 to play in a celebrity game sponsored by Kellogg’s. Perhaps he was thinking of his final professional game there, which he played as a member of the Houston Rockets on May 4, 1999. He put up 12/6/8 in 34 minutes in a 100-83 road win. This was the second to last year of his career. Unfortunately for Barkley, and unlike Anthony Edwards and the Timberwolves, the Rockets were bounced in the first round of the playoffs that year. The Los Angeles Lakers, featuring future Inside the NBA cohost Shaquille O’Neal, defeated the Rockets in four games.
