Anthony Edwards was not awarded the Rookie of the Year award for the 2020-21 NBA season on Wednesday as it went to Charlotte’s LaMelo Ball. Did Edwards get robbed or was Ball deserving? Host Brendan Hedtke couldn’t tackle that question alone, so he needed some help. There’s nothing quite like talking to your boss about basketball, so Brendan had Canis Hoopus’ Editor-In-Chief and certified Minnesota Timberwolves Optimist Kyle Theige on the podcast to discuss that topic and more.
On the front end of a podcast back-to-back for Thursday and Friday morning, Brendan and Kyle talked about the ROY winner (sans the voting results which were not released at the time of recording), new owner Alex Rodriguez’s Instagram reply about not moving the team, and more!
Come back tomorrow for more content from Brendan and Kyle, including thoughts on the upcoming draft lottery, draft lottery party details, and the duo’s thoughts on how far the Wolves are from being on a level playing field with some of the mid-tier playoff teams.
