Anthony Edwards, who has clearly grown this year, says he’d eventually like to put on five more pounds. But said that will mostly be about diet — more muscle, less body fat.
I asked if that means no more Popeyes. Edwards said: “That’s hard. That’s the hardest thing to do.” – 2:54 PM

Anthony Edwards says the ways he’s being guarded lately has shifted.
“Guys, they actually try and get physical with me, so that’s when I’m like, ‘alright, bruh’.”
I asked Edwards about in the past how physicality led him to go to the step-back. He said: “Yeah, not no more.” – 2:50 PM

First time talking to Anthony Edwards since the Atlanta game today.
Asked about that game, Edwards said: “I’m not even thinking about that game.”
He also said he did apologize to his teammates for getting ejected, because “I feel like I left them by theyself.” – 2:46 PM

D’Angelo Russell when asked if he said anything to Anthony Edwards about his ejection after the game:
“He got fouled. And then the ref took it personal. I don’t think there’s anything to say to him. It is what it is.” – 10:39 PM

You can tell the Hawks are intentionally loading up the defender on Anthony Edwards’ left shoulder, trying to force him to go right.
Ant obviously shoots with his right, but he prefers to go left. This is the first time I’ve ever really noticed a team forcing him right though. – 7:53 PM

Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
Anthony Edwards looks to be right at home. 12 points on 5-8 in 6 minutes. – 7:51 PM

Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
Atlanta/Georgia natives Anthony Edwards, Josh Okogie, Malik Beasley have dozens of ticket requests in for tonight. More than 60 total between the three of them and Edwards’ total was still growing just a few hours before tipoff. – 7:24 PM

Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
Anthony Edwards is back home in Atlanta tonight for the Wolves game vs. the Hawks.
Looking back to the long commutes, naps on his classroom floor and the drive he showed to get where he always knew he was going.

Chris Haynes: Sources: @NBAonTNT report on Trae Young’s intentions to participate in the 3-Point Contest if selected as an All-Star and the Atlanta Hawks’ plan to place a bid to host All-Star Weekend. pic.twitter.com/5RJ1ITFbQe -via Twitter @ChrisBHaynes / January 18, 2022

What goals did you have for yourself this season? Any accolades or participating in the three-point contest? Seth Curry: I don’t have any individual goals for statistics. I want to be efficient and shoot the ball at a high clip. You brought up the three-point contest. I feel like I’ve got to add one of those to the mantel to be a part of the (Curry) family. Hopefully, I can get one of those before my career is over. Steph (Curry) already has two of them. If I get the invite, I’m going to go to as many as possible, so I can add one to the trophy case. -via HoopsHype / November 18, 2021
