Coronavirus pandemic 'was nothing' to potential No. 1 NBA draft pick

Anthony Edwards could be the No. 1 pick when the NBA选秀 begins next month.

Edwards, a standout from 佐治亚州, had his pro day Thursday night. He appeared on ESPN’s “Sportscenter” and was asked how he handled working out since the college basketball season abruptly ended in March because of the coronavirus pandemic.

“I feel like the pandemic was nothing to me,” Edwards told anchor John Buccigross. “I was already living in a pandemic because all I wanted to do was get better. I’m an in-home kid so all I want to do is get better, play with my dogs and play the game all day. That’s all I want to do.”

Minnesota Timberwolves, Golden State WarriorsCharlotte Hornets each have the top three picks in the draft, and any one of the teams could get Edwards. But the guard isn’t expected to fall below No. 3.

Edwards’ workout was hosted by Klutch Sports – the same agency that reps 洛杉矶湖人队 stars 勒布朗·詹姆斯Anthony Davis.

Edwards said he hopes that he’s the No. 1 pick because it’s all about “bragging rights.”

“It’s a dream come true. I feel like if I get picked first overall I got bragging rights and I just can’t stop there. I got to prove myself. I got to prove that I should be the No. 1 挑. I gotta prove that if they pick me, I belong out here and I’m [gonna] stay,“ 他说.
