What did Edwards say?

Last season, Edwards became the subject of memes after he infamously compared 14-time All-Star Kevin Durant and his teammate Jaden McDaniels in the same sentence. Edwards said. “They got KD, but we’ve got Jaden McDaniels,” during a SiriusXM Radio appearance in February 2023.

A portion of the video was taken out of context. The star player for the Timberwolves refuted claims that McDaniels could match Durant shot for shot. In the interview, Edwards clarified that he meant McDaniels as a formidable defender to take on Durant, who he considers to be his all-time favorite player.

McDaniels erupted in game 2 against the Phoenix Suns

However, in Game 2 of the Timberwolves vs. Suns 2024 first-round series at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, McDaniels lived up to the misplaced hype. With 25 points on 10/17 shooting, 8 rebounds, and 3 assists, McDaniels led all scorers. He finished one point short of his regular-season high in points, setting a playoff career high.

The performance speaks volumes of the talent that McDaniels has in terms of being a scorer. However, he has focused more on his defensive capabilities to contain the best players from the opposition teams.
