The Minnesota Timberwolves are on an early roll so far in this brand-new season. Bannered by their young and talented core of Karl Anthony-Towns, Anthony Edwards and D’Angelo Russell, the pack is poised and hungered for a playoff push — a thing that the whole franchise only savored twice since 2004.

As such, their recent dub against the reigning NBA champion Milwaukee Bucks was a morale booster with regards to their capabilities for contention. Beating the league’s most dominant player and their leader in Giannis Antetokounmpo may seem to be an additional confidence builder, but every single one within the lineup must acknowledge his overwhelming force that is too daunting to overcome.

In a post-game interview via Timberwolves reporter Dane Moore, Edwards said that Giannis is physically imposing — so much that his scoring numbers will always be off-the-charts.

“With a guy like that, you can’t stress about him scoring. That’s what he’s gonna do. Motherfucker’s 7’2″, 280 pounds. Ain’t nothing you can do. We could put four people on him and he’s still gonna score the ball.”

Giannis had a wonderful 40-point, 16-rebound performance, but it wasn’t enough to topple the visiting T-Wolves. This spectacular highlight, wherein he performed a self-tossed alley-oop against four different jerseys, gathered a wow factor amongst the basketball landscape — just clearly shows his power and craftiness when carving all the way through the rim.

An uplifting gesture to acknowledge the two-time MVP, Ant and Minny is now up and coming for their very own time to shine. A team composed of competitors, they are set for possible good things ahead in this journey of reemergence.

Bucks and Wolves are set for an inter-conference rematch on March 19 next year in Minneapolis.
