The Minnesota Timberwolves made the right decision by drafting Anthony Edwards as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.
In just three seasons, Edwards has established himself as one of the best young stars in the NBA.
The 22-year-old is now ready to take the leap and win individual accolades in the 2023-24 season.
But before the new season begins, Edwards is apparently using his free time to pass his knowledge on to the younger generation.
The official Twitter handle of the NBA recently posted a clip of Edwards coaching defense at the Jr. NBA clinic in Abu Dhabi.

Ant has the potential to one day become the face of the NBA.
So far, he has improved his stats with each passing season in the league.
In the 2022-23 NBA season, he put up 24.6 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 4.4 assists per game.
He was the primary reason that the Timberwolves avoided getting swept by the first-seeded Denver Nuggets in the NBA playoffs.
As for Edwards’ initiative to teach defense at the Jr. NBA clinic, it could be foreshadowing related to his goals for the upcoming season.
He previously announced that he is aiming to win the regular-season MVP award.
But could Edwards also be a contender to take home the NBA Defensive Player of the Year award?
The sky is the limit for the 1x NBA All-Star, and if he can stay healthy, fans may see his name attached to several accolades next season.
While individual accolades are important, Edwards will ultimately aim to lead the Timberwolves to a meaningful playoff run.NEXT: Timberwolves Star Shows He’s Ready For A New NBA Season
