NBA Draft 2020: Watch Anthony Edwards drill game-winning 3-pointer

Josh Schrock

Warriors fans got to see two things that were easy on the eyes Wednesday night. 

First, the injury-ravaged Warriors picked up their fourth win of the season, knocking off the rebuilding Chicago Bulls 104-90 at Chase Center. 

For those fans who already have turned their attention to the draft, they might have seen Georgia freshman and likely top-five NBA draft pick Anthony Edwards deliver the first signature moment of his collegiate career over on the big island.

On Tuesday, some of the Warriors' brass was on hand to watch Edwards pour in 37 points -- 33 in the second half -- against Michigan State in the 2019 Maui Invitational Tournament. 

Then, on Wednesday, with the Bulldogs in a battle with Chaminade, Edwards scored 15 points in the final 18 minutes, including a dagger 3-pointer to give Georgia the lead with 0.1 seconds remaining.

He called game. 

Edwards might have the highest ceiling of any NBA draft prospect. At 6-foot-5, 225 pounds with a 6-foot-9 wingspan, Edwards is a physical specimen. He is powerful in almost every move he makes, specifically in attacking the rim. But his power and athleticism also permit him to be explosive getting in and out of crossovers and step-backs.

His 3-point shot still needs some work, but based on his shooting display in Maui, he already has improved his stroke.

Edwards is still very young and extremely raw, but there's no denying that he has the potential to be a slashing, attack-the-rim star in his early NBA days, much like Donovan Mitchell or a young Dwyane Wade. 

The 2020 class is relatively weak, but Edwards appears to be one of the early jewels. He would look quite nice next to Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.
